Santorini: A gastronomic destination!

In Santorini you can find everything from the completely authentic and loyally old fashioned to the ultra-modern, gourmet and molecular, depending on your tastes.

They make for a perfect salad, often sprinkled with lots of juicy capers, or cooked up as the island’s famous tomato fritters that are hot, creamy and cheesy inside and crisp on the outside. The tomatoes are also served sun-dried in many recipes.

You must taste fava, a thick, yellow, creamy side dish made from split yellow beans, and today often topped with lemon and capers or caramelized onions and balsamic vinegar. This is an ancient dish that got its name from the days of the Roman occupation (favus is Latin for broad bean).

And for those with a sweet tooth, don’t miss out on meletinia, which are like sweet cheese pies, or Santorini pudding with semolina, milk and chocolate.
