Greek food, the Mediterranean Diet and Thessaloniki eating traditions took center stage during the National Geographic Channel’s EAT: The Story of Food event held in the northern port city last week within the framework of the ongoing Mediterranean Cosmos Food Festival running through March 7.
Chefs, food bloggers, journalists, entrepreneurs, F&B professionals and foodies of all sorts gathered to learn more about the secrets of Thessaloniki cuisine.
Donning his apron and toque, featured chef Christophoros Peskias joined food blogger Madame Ginger (aka Marilou Pantaki) in live cooking sessions, which included six recipes inspired by the six units of Greek food history as these are presented in the episodes of the EAT: The Story of Food show.
Thessaloniki and its goodies were also featured in National Geographic Traveller’s Jan/Feb 2015 issue under the title “Eat: Thessaloniki” focusing on the northern port city’s rich, multicultural past and “passion for food”.
Organized by FOX International Channels Greece, the event, also held in Athens earlier this year, promoted EAT: The Story Of Food, which is aired every Monday at 4pm on the National Geographic Channel, exploring the history of food.
Part of FOX International Channels, FOX International Channels Greece broadcasts digitally in Greece and Cyprus through subscriber platforms.
