Although closely resembling the Greek cuisine, the gastronomy of Cyprus was influenced by centuries of woe under the most powerful empires of the antiquity. The island was occupied by the Assyrians, Egyptians, Persians, Romans, Venetians, and for more than three centuries, by the Ottomans. These civilizations left their mark on the local culinary traditions, and today, the island of love is paradise for foodies and gourmands.
