"We enjoyed this unique tour very much! We thank you for offering a tour that explores Greek history and food. It was especially interesting due to its focus on vegetarian food. We have not seen this option in our travels and we think you are leading the way with this. The tour leader, Elena, was very knowledgeable and showed her love of history, food, and her people. We had the chance to meet people who have worked for generations cooking and baking for Athens. We sampled Greek delicacies while learning how history changed food and people. We cant thank you enough and hope that you continue this valuable tour.
During the tour Elena kept notes of our questions and promised to send a follow up email with specific recommendations. She followed up immediately and gave us further information based on our questions. She was very professional and friendly. She is clearly loved in the community and we could see why!"
WHY WE LOVE IT
This is a delicious culinary adventure through the Mediterranean cuisine's rich vegetarian options; yum!
Learn about the unique produce of the Greek land as you discover mastiha, saffron and their uses in Greek cuisine. Taste the colourful and fascinating Greek salads together with delicious pies with sumptuous and interesting stuffings: artisanal cheese, olives, tomatos, red peppers and olive oil flavours right from the best sources in town!
What's more, during this walking tour your guide will cover theory (with practise!) on one of the most important Greek products, extra virgin olive oil! After a brief 'lesson', you will savour the typical Greek dish of "ladera" prepared with onion and fresh vegetables such as peas or artichokes, all cooked in olive oil. Your guide will also introduce you to the large chapter of the Greek vegetarian culture, through delicious veggie croquettes, wraps full of aromatic Greek flavours, traditional desserts such as yogurt with honey and the famous "spoon sweets" which are fruit preserves paired with liqueur and Greek coffee! A hearty food tour purely for vegetarians and Greek food enthusiasts that will definitely make you skip lunch!
