It was solely produced on sour milk and coarse grain. Dardouma family are traditional pasta producers. Their great-grandmother Maria was the person that created this family tradition. Born in 1914 and coming from a poor farming family, great-grandmother Mary loved cooking. She made the sweet and sour trahana with milk and wheat of her own production. Her daughter Joanna, with her granddaughter, Mary, also thrived in the kitchen. The love bond that the grandmother, daughter and granddaughter shared for pasta would be the incentive for the establishment of this pasta workshop in 2008. The two sons of Mary Dardouma, John and Evangelos have now taken over, in order to save and share these traditional flavors. The Dardouma family has a history of 100 years and many recipes to share with you!
