Gastronomy represents the culture of an area or region and reveals information concerning its culture and economical history.
Greek gastronomy has recorded a history of around 4,000 years, with especial characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek land. In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history (330 B.C.).In contrast to what many people believe about Greek cuisine, you will discover that “moussaka”, “souvlaki” and “choriatiki” (Greek salad) are not the only worthwhile Greek dishes.
