Dakos from Kasos
Dakos from Kasos is a yellowish rusk made with wheat or barley flour.
This kind of rusk is a very popular kind of bread in the Southern Aegean particularly in Kasos. As in these islands there was never enough wood or coal, they made these rusks very few times a year but in quantities that would meet the consumers’ needs.
In the past this kind of rusk was made for sailors or shepherds because they were often away for long periods of time but nowadays it is consumed by everyone.
