Two friends from Plomari set out to convince us that Lesvos is the promised land. Andreas Karapatakis chef with 8 years experience in the kitchens, and Lefteris Antonakas, devoted woodcarver, methodically undertook to supply Athens with the goodness of their land.

The foregoing will accompany with one of the 7 ladotyri, which will try to choose the one you prefer.
