The gastronomical journey that took place in six Italian cities — Milan, Bologna, Pesaro, Rome, Florence and Turin — was possible thanks to the cooperation of tour operator Eden Viaggi and Greek hotel chain Aldemar Hotels. This year’s event was dedicated to Greek cuisine and it took place from February 16 to 26, with the participation of Italian journalists, tour operators and bloggers who work in the field of travel and tourism.
Under the valuable guidance well-known Aldemar Hotels chefs, journalists and tour operators got involved in preparing Greek dishes inspired by the four seasons. Sympossio 2015 opted to present the following Greek dishes: trachanas with mushrooms and cheese for winter, salad with beetroot and baked feta for spring, sea bass a la spetsiota for summer and loukoumades with honey, nuts and ice cream for autumn.
“Our aim is to promote Greek gastronomy as part of our tourist wealth, with the direct participation of journalists from specialized magazines, tourism agencies owners and managers and young bloggers, who promote our country via the Internet,” said Kyriaki Boulasidou, head of the Greek National Tourism Organization office in Italy.
“This is a new, creative way that allows us to create new relationships with the press and professionals in the tourism industry, presenting dishes not included in our traditional and well-known Greek recipes,” she added.
