Eat and Drink in Greece

Athens has a fine range of eateries ranging from down-to-earth traditional tavernas to upmarket restaurants serving fusion cuisine. Plaka is undeniably pretty, though many of its restaurants are aimed at tourists and can be a little disappointing. In the city centre, is where you will find some excellent so-called modern tavernas, serving classic Greek dishes with a contemporary twist. Trying the traditional greek meals are one of those things that you have to do in your life at least once.

 

The secret to Greek cooking is often found in the chef's garden. Basic ingredients such as feta and olive oil are at home across Greece, but the regional produce and cooking styles make travelling here a culinary adventure. Taste herbs and mountain greens, you've never heard of, mussels steamed in ouzo, bread baked with olives, and fish straight from the sea. Taste-test regional cheeses: crumbling feta, honeyed soft cheeses and sharp, hard rounds. Find Italian influences in risottos and pastas or Turkish spices woven into delicate sweets. A traditional-cooking renaissance has chefs lifting time-honoured recipes to new gourmet heights.
