SNAP UP ADVANCE TICKETS FOR TASTE OF ATHENS

By THIS IS ATHENS TEAM at 11.Jul



You’ve heard all about Athens’ gastronomic revolution and would love to treat yourself to the city’s finest fare...

Here’s some great news for foodies who find themselves in Athens in late September: you’ll be able to sample outstanding dishes from the city’s brightest culinary stars — at affordable prices — when Taste of Athens makes its debut. 
The four-day food festival will take place from September 27-30 at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC). Athens is the latest destination for the flagship gourmet series, which also plates up in culinary hotspots like London, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Dubai, Milan, Sydney and Hong Kong.

In a laid-back picnic, ten iconic Athenian restaurants and their chefs will set up pop-ups on the Great Lawn, serving exclusive tasting menus at reduced prices (€3, 6, 9 and 12). Participating restaurants include fine dining favourites Balthazar, Vezene and Premiere, and Michelin-starred Hytra, Spondi and Varoulko Seaside. You’ll also have the chance to discover fashionable flavours from newcomers Birdman and Bites and Wine.

Additionally, visitors can watch Athens’ leading chefs cook up a storm at live demonstrations, get hands-on at interactive masterclasses, indulge in free wine and whisky tastings, and browse boutique food markets featuring artisan producers. 
Taste of Athens’ debut is a brilliant endorsement of Athens’ arrival as a world-class dining destination – and a pretty great way to mark the end of summer.
