EAT AND DRINK LIKE AN OLYMPIAN GOD
With a priceless culinary heritage dating back several millennia, the Greek gastronomy is more than just tasteful and healthy dishes; it’s the epitome of a whole philosophy of life where the ritual of dining has been the central focus of daily and social life over the centuries until modern days, marking our history and culture.
Through the passage of time, Greeks have been gathering to eat, drink and socialize in coffee houses, taverns, ouzo shops, and family homes. From Sunday family gatherings to wedding feasts, dinning for our people has always been not only the reason to relish and taste the immense Greek gastronomic wealth but also a means of socializing and expression of folk culture.
Excavations of the American School of Archeology in the early 70’s in the ancient Athenian Agora and the large number of wine pots and food plates that were found, yielded sufficient evidence of the existence of taverns even from ancient times.
With wine and olive oil having always been a central part of Greek cookery, every corner of the country has its unique specialties, dishes that have evolved over time, influenced by different conquerors and refugees who have left their own culinary stamp through time turning Greek gastronomy into a forerunner of Western cuisine.
With 10 Michelin stars and chefs that are distinguished in Greece and abroad, with recipes that reflect a fresh gastronomic outlook that fuses a modern approach on the Greek cuisine that does not diverge from its roots and memories, with a contemporary and often playful version of classic ideas, with thousand distinct flavors, fragrances and velvety touches from all over the country, Greece has created its own unique modern cuisine claiming a place on the global gastronomic scene and is sure to thrill the palettes of even the most demanding guests.
