I've been trying to research the foodways of Cypress for some time.  It's slow going, because most of the majority foods are little different than one finds in Greece.  What I'm looking for are those dishes and approaches that are distinctly Cypriot.

I'd appreciate any inputs.

Precious little out there Brook..as you said the differences between Cypriot and Greek are so minor. Here's one link I came up with.

Thanks, Dave.  I'd missed that one in my search, and it has some interesting stuff I'd not found elsewhere.

Thanks, Melissa.

I'd already come across that one in my research.  

One nice thing about Cypriot food is that I don't have to find too many rare ingredients, as I have most of them from other projects.  

The hardest to find is caul fat.  It's available on-line, but mostly only in large quantities (like 5 to 10 lbs). Add in the shipping, and the fact most of the specialty butchers who supply it have minimum order sizes, and your talking about really big bucks.  

I did find one supplier who offers smaller amounts. But by the time you factor in the extras, it would have cost $133. That's just not going to happen. Alas!Cry
