Gkogkes

The Gkogkes are a traditional, handmade pasta of the region of Argolida. They are made from flour, water and salt. They are served with local manouromyzithra (local cheese) and hot oil.
Although the preparation is not particularly difficult , it is a food that needs "art" to suceed. The secret is in the cheese, which essentially melts with the hot oil and the pasta gets a special flavor . If you find yourself in a home, particularly in the surrounding villages, then you will definitely find them.
