Description

Greeks, it is said, approach food with a mix of passion and nostalgia, inevitably reminiscing about the dishes on which they were raised.

With a foodie guide, you will explore some of Greece’s finest traditional dishes as well as mouth-watering local specialities. You will taste crumbly greek cheeses, buttery olive oils and succulent pastries and gain an insight into Greece’s unique culinary customs.
You can choose to indulge in fresh koulóuria, a sesame bagel baked crunchy with a delectably soft inside or maybe you will sample yoghurt, spices, local wine and aged aromatised vinegars and treat your taste buds to fresh honey, syrupy Loukoumade, and Galaktoboureko - custard-filled filo pastry.

Visit Greek kitchens, meet chefs, spend time in speciality food stores that tourists rarely discover. Gain cooking tips, learn closely guarded food secrets and enjoy a homegrown Grecian coffee during a visit to the city’s finest seafood, meat and poultry market, the Varvakios Agora of Athens.
