Thessaloniki Food Stories: Gastronomic tour
About the tour:
Thessaloniki since its foundation in 315 BC. has always been a cosmopolitan center, a crossroad of people and cultures. So is her gastronomy: a mixture of traditions of Christian, Muslim, Armenian and Jewish populations that coexisted in the city with the traditions Greek refugees brought with them, when they arrived from Asia Minor in the early 20th century.
The fact that the city is located in the center of the fertile Macedonian flatland with a busy harbor, has influenced as expected, it’s market, which has always been full of fresh local agricultural and livestock products, as well as exotic food raw materials.
The tour is the perfect experience for those who love food & drinks and want to get familiar with the city’s past and present through the flavors and tastes that give Thessaloniki its unique gastronomic character.
