Ta Mylelia ’ Water Mill … is the embodiment of a life-long passion for the forgotten tastes of rural Greece.
In 1992, renovated a 305 year-old watermill on the Greek island of Lesvos. Soon after restoration, the mill began producing kilos of stone-ground flour each day. To put this healthy, all-natural, durum wheat flour to good use, created a line of homemade, traditional Greek pasta, all-bran pasta, and gourmet flavoured pasta like saffron pasta, squid ink pasta and pasta kneaded with ouzo and feta cheese.
This was the start.
To imbue their products with authentic homemade tastes, we use only the highest quality fruits and vegetables, grown especially for us on small family farms which we visit every season. All of our products are traditionally made, not on an assembly line but at individual home-style kitchen stations where a single person prepares each day, only one product from start to finish, in a quantity of no more than 80 to 120 jars. They are all based on traditional Greek and Mediterranean recipes, typical of the Mediterranean diet, a proven beneficial regime proscribing healthy recipes and healthy eating.
The revival of the cottage industry into modern life is our principal goal. Therefore, ‘Ta Mylelia’ Water Mill range includes a large variety of almost-forgotten recipes, as well as many new ones inspired by Christina Panteleimonitis, the founder of ‘Ta Mylelia’ Water Mill. Many of Christina’s ideas and thoughts can be found in her cookbook ‘Ta Mylelia-a Family Concern’ published by ‘Livanis’.
They use no preservatives in their products, basing their production on old, traditional preservation methods for pasta dehydration and jar pasteurization. Olive oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, liqueur, honey, sterilization and most of all strict hygienic conditions are ‘secrets’ for long lasting 100% natural products.
