Santorini's Food & Wine

Santorini's cuisine is primarily based on the island's own agricultural products. Products nourished by the volcanic soil, the sea breeze and the sunshine of the Aegean Sea, giving them a unique taste. When combined with the almost exclusively organic cultivation of the island the result is top quality ingredients that produce original, tasty and healthy food. 

Active Foodie in Thessaloniki

Food is the most serious matter for Greeks. Here big families gather daily around the table, and having dinner together is customary. Large groups of friends or colleagues celebrate nearly everything, from a marriage to the signing of a contract, in taverns, and not in bars. When Greeks cook at home, and they do this quite a lot, they discuss the menu in advance with their guests.
