To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the start of the Greek Revolution, a special menu was prepared based on ingredients and recipes of the period. Following in the footsteps of the revolutionaries of 1821, we gain an insight into their way of life and  in particular, their eating habits.  

The purpose of this action is to enhance experiential and informational familiarity with the conditions of the liberation struggle through gastronomy and foodstuffs, but also the adoption of these recipes by restaurants  in the Peloponnese, the serving of the respective dishes to visitors in the region, or the drawing of inspiration from the ingredients for the creation of their own dishes. 

With the help of a specially curated menu, select local restaurants in the Peloponnese, but also in Athens, Thessaloniki and across the country, will be able to offer their guests a taste of… Revolution.

“The gastronomy of the Peloponnese is deeply rooted in history. The quality agricultural products one finds in the Peloponnese, such as extra virgin olive oil, wine, fruit and dairy foods, along with the passion of the producers."

Pairing suggestion by Master of Wine Konstantinos Lazarakis

“There may be no other natural product from the earth, which expresses with such clarity but also complexity the characteristics of the place it grows, than the grape that is transformed into wine. Anyone who knows the Peloponnese even a little can easily imagine that its wines will be exceptional. And vice-versa: a sip of Peloponnesian wine can show just how exceptional the Morea is.”
