Wine, dine or cook across the Peloponnese. Bon Appetit!
Most of us have heard of Corinth raisins and Kalamata olives, but many don’t know much about where they really come from. In the fertile sunny peninsula of Southern Greece, a region known since ancient times as the Peloponnese, the bounty of the gods is plentiful and everything tastes so real. Almost anything grows here, from apples and oranges to grapes and olives. Meathy chestnuts, quality walnuts, aromatic herbs, seafood delicacies, organic honey, delectible cheeses, juicy mandarines, dried figs, unique eggplants, fresh eggs and free-range farm animals grace the landscape of this blessed land. But it’s how these all come together to create a hearty meal, how they’re served up to the locals in the tavernas and fish restaurants, and how they’re prepared that makes the ingredients and resulting dishes oh so special. Add to that healthy doses of olive oil and wine from the Peloponnesian region of Nemea and beyond, plus local pasta, sourdough bread and some traditional almond sweets, and your stomach will beg you to move here. Pick and choose as many tours as you like from the below, as no two food experiences will taste the same. And all are mouthwatering!
