Dardoumas laboratory is a family business founded in 2008 in Velos, Aliveri in Evia island. Their main goal is to offer to their customers the opportunity to taste traditionally made products based on old recipes. They combine these old recipes with modern technology and create several kinds of pasta like trahana, hilopites(type of noodles) and gogglies ready to be served on the plate of people who seek traditionally made and qualitive products. They only use locally produced raw material to make pasta, maintaining in this way the flavor and quality to the highest level.
Τrahana is a traditional Greek dish and is an evolution of the Greek roman porridge. A roman author Apicius, who had written many cookery books and recipes, mentions a type of food known as "tractae" which was a very thick porridge in granular form used to thicken any kind of sauces. It was solely produced on sour milk and coarse grain. The Trahana produced by Dardouma pasta laboratory is handmade with no additives or preservatives. Trahana is also considered a low calorie and low fat food.
Euboea is the second largest island in Greece and the sixth largest in the Mediterranean. The pines and plane trees forests with their springs and running water, the magical sand beaches with countless little coves and the blue-green waters of the Aegean, the mountainous groups and fertile plains, the tidal phenomenon in the Euripus strait and the gorges, complete the beautiful picture of Euboea.
Apart from being a beautiful land, Euboea is also a fertile land with a variety of excellent products. Kymi is in the lead with its famous figs, but also its citrus trees and other fruit. Mushrooms, excellent beer, wine, tsipouro, jams, honey and seeds are some of the countless products produced in the area, which are now ranked highly.
