What to Expect

While Greeks are no strangers to the thrill of the grill, the earliest record of vegetarianism can be traced back to ancient Greece, with most essential Greek ingredients, such as the tomato, zucchini or sweet perfumed figs, being sourced from the land.  

What’s on the menu? From Greek salads to mouth-watering pies, your tour will provide you with information on the ingredients that give vegetarian Greek dishes their unique taste. Delectable Greek vegetarian dishes rely on ingredients like saffron, mastiha, red peppers, tomatoes and cheese.

When ranking the staples of Greek Gastronomy, olive oil comes at the top of the list. While it can be used for roasting and frying meat and fish, it also holds great value among vegetarians, being the main ingredient of  a range of local dishes known collectively as  ‘ladera’, with the most traditional recipes including vegetable and bean-based stews.

After feasting on a wide range of savory vegetarian Greek treats, including veggie croquettes and Greek wraps, your chef will complete your experience with an offering of traditional desserts. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy a serving of yogurt with honey. You can also try the well-known ‘spoon sweets’ , which are fruit preserves combined with liqueur. To cleanse your palate following the sumptuous vegetarian feast, you will be served traditional Greek Coffee.

Vegetarians in Greece will be spoiled for choice! So come and join us, our vegetarian delights are waiting for you to discover them!
