Chylopites – Agrozymi 500gr

$47.00

“Hilopites” – a word evoking centuries-old memories: aromas of fresh pasta drying on white bed sheets at grandma’s house in midsummer… Perhaps one of the oldest pastas in the Mediterranean basin. We know today that the ancient Greeks kneaded the laganum, a thin round dough sheet made of flour and water, which they dried and cut into strips, similar to their modern version. Agrozimi hilopites pasta is made with strictly sourced raw ingredients, reviving a time-honored culinary tradition. Unlike other pastas, hilopites is not drained: it is served in its reduced cooking water, hence its current name (hilos is the Greek word for “gruel”). Enjoy with prosciutto and asparagus, braised chicken, chicken fillets, a cheddar or mozzarella cheese sauce, or just plain with a dollop of yogurt and freshly ground pepper.

Package: 500 gr. Packet
