Pasteli Festival

Pasteli Festival

Pasteli: A famous sweet made of sesame seeds and honey. The Amorgian version wants it softer and “reinforced” with a small dose of cumin.

It is served on a lemon-tree leaf which enhances its distinctive taste. The last few years, “Simonidis”, the Cultural Asssociation of Chora organizes the “Pasteli Festival” during the first half of August with great success.
