wild pickings

spring time in Paxos brings an abundance of wild flowers and vegetables, huge clumps of wild Madonna lilly’s, purple honesty, cyclamen, blue-bells and baby narcissus form ‘blanket’s all over the island. Wild asparagus can be found in certain parts and adds a bitterness to local dishes, wild horta are the various edible leafy greens that grow seasonally throughout the year.

There is great pleasure to be had in cooking what you have literally just picked, for that reason we always walk with a bag and a little knife to then return home and cook what we have found. March time brings beautiful clear days which means outdoor cooking on the quiet beaches..
