Chef Diane Kochilas Presents Athens Food & Culture Walks

ATHENS – Celebrity chef and cookbook author Diane Kochilas presents Athens Food & Culture Walks. One of the world’s foremost experts on Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, Kochilas is also the host, creator and co-producer of My Greek Table, the award-winning 13-episode per season cooking-travel show about Greece that airs nationally on Public Television. The series is in its third season.

Of the Athens Food & Culture Walks, she noted on her website, “if you are planning a trip to Athens and want an insightful sense of local culture, food, history and music, join me and/or a group of carefully chosen experts on my new and exciting travel experiences in the Greek capital.”

Kochilas continued: “My Athens Food & Culture Walks are fun, informative walking tours of the city, each exploring a different aspect of life here: Regional Delicacies, an exploration of the regional flavors of Greece as they are found in the city; East Meets West, about the confluence of cultures in this fascinating urban center; and Music & Meze, a night in which you’ll learn about — and hear — the soulful Greek musical tradition called Rebetika, akin to the American Blues, while enjoying small plates of delicious Greek food.”

“Athens is one of the world's great food cities and I would love to show you some of my personal favorites when it comes to local flavors,” she noted. “While I offer group walks on specific days, I also offer private tours specially tailored to your interests and needs. Whether you're a passionate foodie or a food professional, you can book me and my knowledgeable staff of guides for an in-depth tour and look at the layers of food history in this fascinating city.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
