Culinary Delights

Since ancient times, eating and drinking in Greece has been about much more than just nourishment. It is a ritual celebrated in the company of others. Nothing beats the Greek “parea”, gathering together with family and friends. Only in the company of your favourite people does food taste its best.

The food served in Greece could not be more varied or delicious! Many people think of Greek cuisine as grilled and fried food, but this does not do Greek dishes justice by a long shot! Greek cuisine consists primarily of fresh, local ingredients such as a wide variety of vegetables with plenty of olive oil.

From these, they create excellent salads, soups, and many tasty starters and main courses. Freshly caught fish and seafood frequently accompany the dishes. Fruit is also served in abundance. If you love good food and wine, Greece is the place to be. It is also a dream destination for vegetarians and vegans! Let us take you to a world full of culinary delights! Our guided cooking holidays and gourmet tours will turn you into a connoisseur and lover of Greek cuisine in no time!

 

Are your tours suitable for vegetarians/vegans?
Vegetarians are usually very happy on our culinary tours. However, unfortunately, not all our gourmet tours are suitable for vegans. You can find out more about each tour in the respective FAQ section. If you would like to book a vegetarian option, please inform us in good time before the start of the tour.

Do the tours cater for food intolerances?
As a rule, common food intolerances such as lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance can be accommodated for on our tours. Please inform us of your food intolerance in good time before the start of the tour. If you have any other food intolerances or allergies, please contact us before booking the tour.

Is Greek food healthy?
Greek cuisine, which mainly consists of fresh, regional products and largely avoids adding strong spices, is considered one of the healthiest in the world. It is certainly no coincidence that Greeks have the longest life expectancy in Europe. A large part of this is due to the Greek olive oil, which is consumed in large quantities. Greek olive oil is hard to find abroad because the Greeks love to eat it themselves!

Are there any excellent Greek wines?
Of course! Who, if not the Greeks, who have spread the art of wine growing throughout Europe, should be able to produce good wines?

Premium wines can be found in many regions throughout the country, however, the wines from the Peloponnese, from Attica, and from the area around Delphi take the crown.

Some islands are also world-famous for their viticulture, such as the volcanic wines of Santorini. And no wine connoisseur would refuse the delicious wines from Naxos, Paros, Kefalonia, Crete, and Samos.
