Food and fun were at the center of this year’s “Greece, Festival, Flavors” Christmas festival, which took place on 5-7 December at the Helexpo Maroussi center.

Featuring 140 Greek producers and their select products, dozens of acclaimed chefs, wine experts, journalists, thespians, connoisseurs and foodies partook in sampling sessions at the 4th Greece, Festival, Flavors Christmas fest, which ushered in the holiday season in true gastronomic style.

Visitors had the chance to partake in the wide variety of parallel events, including on-the-spot cooking classes, tasting sessions on everything from wine and cheese to cold cuts and honey, and workshops on wine and its glass to the secrets of the best macaron. Even the street food of Agias Irinis Square, the trendiest spot in Athens as of late, enjoyed its moment of fame.
