Swett Bread of Kythira

αρτος κυθήρων

The bread of Kythira is a traditional sweet, which you will have the opportunity to try during your stay on the island. You prepare it in almost all the bakeries on the island, but you also offer it to housewives after the end of the service, and especially during the holiday season.
In modern terms, we would say that this is a healthy cake, since it contains only the minimum percentage of sugar, honey, olive oil and a pleasant aroma.
