What you can expect

Working as a food journalist for about 10 years, I discovered every new product that would appear on the market, taste it and decide whether it was good enough to make a presentation of it. The outcome of this experience is a solid knowledge of the Greek food market and a deep love for Greek goodies.

Now, I want to share this experience with you! Follow me to the food stores in which locals do their daily shopping and try the delicacies you'll be offered!

We'll try out the delicious kouluri (pretzel with sesame seeds) and mix it up with some oil tasting and cheesy bites. You'll get a feel of the freshness that the ingredients have and enjoy each of the small goodies.

On our way, you'll also get a chance to see some of the hidden gems of the city and have a small look at the local lifestyle.

Book your experience and let me show you the real taste of Greece!
