Flavors are unique here, and so are the experiences!
Santorini is frequently acclaimed in international publications referred to gastronomy during the last years for both its unique natural products as well as its superior cuisine.
Santorini is the island of colour and flavour; it is thus understandable that this mesmerising place would represent a destination of high gastronomical experiences.
Due to the unique ecology and climate, the volcanic ash soil has set the island as a home of an exclusive and high-quality produce.
The traditional products of Santorini capture the volcanic intensity of the island and stand out for their exemplary taste, high quality and rarity. Some of them, such as the cherry tomato, wine and split peas have been labeled as P.D.O products (Protected Designation of Origin) by the European Union and are known for their uniqueness.
Don’t miss: “Domatokeftethes” (Santorini Tomato Fritters)
The Greek island is known for it’s special variety of tomatoes that grow nowhere else in the world. And Santorinians love to dice these special tomatoes up with onion and a little bit of mint, mix in some flour, and fry them up into domatokeftethes (pronounced doh-mah-to-kef-TEH-thes).
