What does Athens taste like? A melting pot of Tongues, Temperaments, and Terroirs
What would a city taste like? Would such a terroir be an amalgam of those of the more definable neighbourhoods that surround it? So would Exarcheia taste different from Kifissia or Kolonaki, and the taste of Athens be a sum of its parts? Or might it have a distinctive quality that—for different reasons—represents a break from expectations? Find out answers to these consuming questions or simply sample Athens at its creative best with Michelin chefs and the city’s finest culinary talents at the Taste of Athens Festival from September 29 to October 2 at the SNFCC!
