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.”
