This inaugural newsletter aims to provide friends and collaborators with valuable information concerning Gastronomic Tourism in Greece. Our goal is to update you with tips for travel experiences, highlight special tastes, and offer a unique behind the scenes glimpse into the Gastronomy Tours community in collaboration with an amazing team of journalists, chefs, and food and travel bloggers.

Gastronomy Tours is a unique guide designed to showcase producers, and museums of gastronomic products open to visitors, along with a plethora of information related to local products and local cuisine, a glossary of gastronomical terms, a calendar of traditional festivals and events with a focus in gastronomy.

   Traveling with Gastronomy Tours, will help you experience and learn the history, traditions, the local food products, the cuisine and the beauties of the place you visit, participating in the local culture and appreciating them not as a tourist but rather as a local.

   A few years were needed to compile this wealth of information that we now present to you, an ecosystem of more than 300 producers, and many more points of interest that you can filter by experience, by destination, or by the period you are planning to travel, and even explore experiences you can find close to your location when using your mobile application. The platform is accessible through any device, fixed or mobile, and is constantly updated to include more information.

    So, what are you waiting for? Through Gastronomy Tours, you can instantly book your visit, tour or experience, in a user-friendly environment and with a minimum cost. All aboard, we are ready to take off!

THE PERSON BEHIND THE SCENES
Anne Kokotos, Wine Producer
In conversation with Tina Panoriou
woman and dog smiling at the camera

Mrs. Kokotou, is it true that this wonderful “adventure”, your occupation with wine, began in 1979 when, during your daughter’s Christening at Elounda Beach, Baron Philippe De Rothschild, the famous French wine producer, offered you as a precious gift a bottle of wine?
Yes, I still remember Baron Philippe arriving cradling a bottle of his Mouton Rothschild in his arms, a precious gift indeed! My husband says that this image inspired him to plant our first vineyards in Stamata when we returned from Crete!

GASTRONOMY TOURS RECIPES 

Gourmet Festive Appetizers 
Around the Table with Angelina Kalogeropoulou

The festive table gets “dressed up” with one of the finest Greek treats, the Trikalinos bottarga (roe). This year we avoid complex and heavy appetizers and to welcome our guests we serve bottarga, a tasty amuse bouche for the first glass of Kir-Yianni Estate wine. 

Choose one of the three easy recipes presented here, with the wine that pairs with them, to get to know the most umami Greek taste and serve it exquisitely in its simplicity.
