Photographer's Note

The village of Zeytinli is under strict protection. It is three kilometres from the island’s center and, as its name indicates, it is located among olive threes (zeytin means olive). Passing through narrow streets on a slight slope one can reach the village square. This square is surrounded by cafes and restaurants which are mostly operated by the local Greeks. Some of the houses in the village have been purchased by people from the major Turkish cities and are being restored.
Here they make a specific dish to the island called “Cullama”, which consists of local wines, stinging nettle (Isigan Out), fennel and similar herbs. The dish called “Cicirya” is made from goats cheese mixed with mint and olive oil and baked in the oven.
