“Pasteli”, traditional favorite sweet of Amorgos, is honored once a year.

“Pasteli” on lemon leaves continues to be the first sweet island weddings, baptisms,  in joys and celebrations. Based on two natural products, whose production was abundant in Amorgos:

- Honey at three main versions, namely reikomelo (from the rich autumnal flowering “reikiou”), “magiatiko” (from spring blooming flowers) and “thumarisio” (from summer flowering thyme).

- Sesame, which is not currently produced but before the production was great in Amorgos.

In recent years, the Cultural Association of  Chora “Simonidis”, organized with great success in the first ten days of August the “Festival of pasteli” at Chora. This is a mini festival where traditional craftsmen with their assistants show the production of pastels, which are then distributed to the visitors. during the  preparation, but also after its end, local music is played, followed by a feast with raki and dances till dawn.
