The Cypriot Culture in Cyprus is older than the Greek Culture in Greece. The Greek Culture is essentially a copy cat of Cypriot culture and inferior to Cypriot Culture no doubt as it combines various Slavo, Albanian, Gypsy and Ottoman influences.


Sadly this is what happens to a Cypriot when he passes through the Australian educational system and spends too much time in the outback. He just comes up with gibberish. :lol:

this is what happens to a Cypriot when they move from the so called "Center of the Universe".

I love exposing your hypocrisy! Next time think before being such a smart arse. :wink:

I have always been rather fond of Cypriot food not least Karaolous, Souvla, and the incomparable Ameletita, bullocks to you.

On a recent visit to Cyprus I was offered Ameletita xidata, what an absolute delight, eaten accompanied by Zivania is an absolute culinary delight.

I wonder if the Greeks like archidia xidata:lol: :lol:

Kleftiko is made in other parts of the world, so are sheftalies and zalatina... There is something that is unique to Cyprus and Greece and that is, the Soup avgolemono.... Am I wrong?

No you are not wrong.

Kleftiko would have to be an Australian Aboriginal invention dating back something ridiculous as 40,000 years ago. :wink:

Other way round. I make avgolemono upon request. Always a favourite of my other half's mother.

Trahanas... He hates it!
