Bring your heartiest appetite. In this episode, we’re going food shopping the Athenian way, with two local food writers. We’ll scour buzzy neighbourhood markets and exotic spice-scented streets—and along the way, we’ll myth bust the Greek love affair with meat; tuck into Athens’ booming “world cuisine” scene; and meet the Greek superfood served at every taverna in town. Finally, we’ll take a nose dive into the heady aromas of Athens and explore the uniquely Greek approach to fasting. “You can always trust a Greek to turn a fast into a feast,” says your host Sofka Zinovieff in this fourth episode, devoted to the Greek capital’s most enticing perfumes and flavours.
