DISCOVER THE SOUL OF MYKONOS IN ITS MOST INTIMATE OF TIMES.
Want to know what Christmas on Mykonos really tastes like? The answer is diples. A delicious symphony of fragrant honey syrup, chopped walnuts and crispy fried dough with crunchy folds whose intoxicating aroma fills the island’s picturesque alleyways every festive season. A favourite of Mykonos as well as the greater Aegean region, the tasty treat has never failed to make an appearance on the islanders’ Christmas tables for centuries, filling their homes and hearts with fond holiday memories. Challenging and notoriously tricky to cook perfectly, the beloved “diples” are a veritable labour of love with their very own place in the festive home, there to be shared and enjoyed with those nearest and dearest.
