Australian Gourmet Traveller Praises Greece

“There’s far more to the Greek capital than ancient history. If one looks beyond the city’s gritty façade he will uncover its culinary heart and soul” told award-winner George Calombaris, Australia’s most renowned Greek-Australian chef, to Austalian Gourmet Traveller Magazine.

The last issue of the Australian magazine holds a celebrating travel feature on Greece, its cuisine and products.

George Calombaris, known for having introduced the Greek cuisine into the modern dining scene of Australia added that the Greek products and cuisine are one of the best in the world. “We’ve got to start pushing our food, being affordable, doing all those things that need to be done for a country to push itself out of recession” added Mr. Calombaris.

Another Greek Australian, Mr. Napoleon Perdis famous make-up artist and businessman told the Magazine that he travels each year to Greece with his family in order to relax and be inspired, while at the same time he provides Australians with advice on which places to visit in Greece.

The latest Australian Gourmet Traveller issue includes several Greek recipes with classics and modern twists on old favourites from famous chefs Tess Malos, George Papaggellou and John Rerakis. Furthermore, Russell Crowe’s assistant, Mr. Nikos Pappas’ travel report on Kastelorizo is also published in this month’s issue.

All in all, experts agree on this: Greece is a country of endless beauty and wealth. History, antiquity, culture, tradition, natural beauty, wonderful climate and amazing products are only some of the aspects Greece uncovers.
