Tsamarella

Edited by

Tsamarella is a dish of goat meat that is considered to be a delicacy as part of the meze meal.

Large pieces of fatty goat meat are slit and salted with heavy weights placed on top of the meat, which is hung to dry in the sun for approximately 10 days. The meat is then soaked, covered in oregano and again, dried in the sun.

Like Hiromeri, Tsamarella is also an ideal accompaniment to Zivania (a strong local spirit).
