The final event, which unraveled under clear and crisp skies, included showcases by famous Greek chefs and local cooks who presented their own versions of traditional sweet and savory pies.

Their creations included ingredients like the famous Corinthian raisins and caper or chick peas from the area of Feneos also known as the Peloponnese “little Switzerland”.

Children were introduced to grape – must bagel making while guests, food bloggers and media representatives were thrilled to taste a variety of locally produced wines and agricultural products representing the best Mediterranean cuisine has to offer.

Following the tradition of all typical Greek food and drink celebrations the event went out with a music & dance bang offered by the Passepartout Band and the local “Choranthi” cultural association.

With its inaugural edition, the Peloponnese Food Stories managed to create a contemporary exploration route for the region’s visitors who seek new and alternative tourism experiences, thus enriching the diversity of the Greek tourism product.
