Greece, along with Italy, Cyprus and Spain are some of the countries that embrace the Mediterranean basin. These countries having similar climate, fauna and flora, have accordingly similar cooking and eating habits. The diet of this area is world famous for its benefits and it is known as the Mediterranean diet.


For centuries, the Mediterranean diet has been considered to be among the healthiest in the world, mainly because of the wide use of olive oil, the therapeutic benefits of which were first mentioned by Hippocrates; the fresh fruit and vegetables, the spices and herbs, the lean meats and fresh water fish.

 

When we say ‘Mediterranean Diet’ we don’t refer only to the food, but the entire lifestyle, which includes the food  and the preparation of it, the activities as well as time for siesta, leisurely meals with friends and family escorted by wine and above all: everything in moderation. If you would like to experience the real Mediterranean Diet it is important to take into consideration all the above mentioned or even better experience it at its home place, here in Greece.

 

The environmental conditions and the climate of Greece have been known for producing food, fro thousands of years of the finest quality and flavour as well as wonderful varieties of wine.

 

The Greek cuisine has a long tradition and some of its dishes can be traced back to the ancient times. The cuisine has evolved throughout the years in many ways, and today it has come to the point to be considered among the top in the world.
