A new pop-up restaurant in London is reviving the tastes of ancient Greece.
Stahtis Georgiadis, one of the co-founders of the Philosopher’s Stove, spoke to Kathimerini newspaper.
“Given that we cannot re-enact the ancient Greek flavor palette, our project is an attempt to interpret the recipes through today’s contemporary reality, based on our own flavor horizon. We try to be as faithful as possible to recipes and references we come across during our research, always working with the ingredients used back then. The feedback we get from those tasting our dishes is that the food is tasty, special and kind of off-the-beaten-culinary track,” he said.
Georgiadis, who is also a historian, believes contemporary Greeks have maintained some of their ancient ancestors’ eating habits. Primarily, the prevalent use of raw materials and olive oil as well as the social nature of the meal itself.
The Ancient Greek pop up is located at Colney Hatch Lane, N10 London.
