Gastronomy derives from the greek word

“gastronomia”
which means “the study of our stomach.”

 

The first cook -book ever written was called

“Hedypatheia”

which means “Pleasant Living”

by the Greek cook Archestratos at the 4th cent. BCE.

 

With his book he proved that apart from philosophy, drama, history and poetry…cooking is also an art worth writing about!

The delicious Greek cuisine is a Mediterranean-style combination of Italian, Balkan, Turkish, and Levantine culinary delights.

 

Rich in the strong local olive oil, herbs like oregano, vegetables, seafood, wine, and various meats, it is one of the world’s healthiest and mouthwatering cuisines.

 

Either dining at an upscale restaurant or enjoying street food, local dishes provide an unforgettable experience for travelers.
