Greek cooking has been shaped to a large extent by the country’s geography, the diverse character of the island and continental regions, which define the culinary identity of each area. Take a trip with us in the land of flavours and aromas, where unexpected combinations and the richness of raw materials make the difference.
The Greek tradition loves equally a simple dish of fruit & cheese and a complex culinary creation. There’s a social dimension that has shaped the eating habits of the Greeks; the tastebuds satisfaction is combined with entertainment and socialising and bears the faint echo of the ancient Greek Symposia. The hour of day when the Greeks gather around the table to enjoy their meal or just a variety of titbits (called mezedes) accompanied by ouzo or a glass of local wine is a special time of enjoyment and relaxation that everyone looks forward to. The Greek word Symposio is as ancient as the Greek people and means “to drink in the company of others”.
