“Hilopites” – a word carrying memories of centuries: aromas of fresh pasta drying on white bed sheets at grandma’s house in midsummer… Perhaps one of the oldest types of pasta in the Mediterranean area. It is known that the ancient Greeks would knead the laganum, a thin round dough sheet made of flour and water, which they dried and cut into strips, similar to the modern version of this pasta. Agrozimi hilopites pasta is made with strictly sourced raw ingredients, reviving a time-honoured culinary tradition. Unlike other types of pasta, hilopites is not drained: it is served in its thickened cooking water, hence its current name (hilos is the Greek word for “gruel”). Combine it with braised chicken, chicken fillets, a feta cheese sauce, or even plain with a spoonful of yogurt and freshly grounded pepper.
