Peloponnese Food Stories: Stories of Tastes, People, Culture
7 August 2022
The Maniatakeion Foundation participates in the 1st Gastronomy Festival “Peloponnese Food Stories: Stories of Tastes, People, Culture” organized by the Peloponnese Region.
This festival involves a set of activities in each of its 5 Regional Sections, with the aim of promoting the culinary wealth of the region and its place in time.
Food Stories will be held on Sunday, August 7 in Koroni, in honour of the Greek Emblematic Community for the Mediterranean Diet (UNESCO, 16 November 2010). In Koroni the Mediterranean Diet is celebrated as an ongoing and daily ritual that praises life and its community. A process that has its beginning in production and eventually ends at one’s daily table.
The Gastronomy Festival will include an exhibition of local products, cooking demonstrations, olive oil and wine tasting, experiential activities for children, as well as music on board. Above all, it is all about celebrating the people’s connection with their history and culture, which is the best chance to get to know themselves and to determine their future.
Ever since the prestigious UNESCO decision, the Maniatakeion Foundation takes the lead in actions that increase public awareness about the Mediterranean Diet as intangible cultural heritage, as well as promoting Koroni as the Greek Emblematic Community for the Mediterranean Diet.
