Souvlaki: The Origins of Greek Fast Food

Greece is well known for its delicious cuisine and healthy Mediterranean diet, but what about its fast food? Everyone who has visited the country has tasted at least once the famous “souvlaki” three dishes combining meat in a very tasteful dish that has become a trademark of the modern Greek culture over the years.

Ancient Delight, immortal in the passage of time. Perhaps the most basic delicacy of Greek gastronomy, but also one of the most famous ones!

The first references to souvlaki are in Homer books, and in particular in the Iliad. King Priamo, came to Achilles and begged for the dead body of his son Hector, who he killed the previous day in the battle. Achilles, according to Homer, offered him a meal of truce, where the two men enjoyed for the moment the blessing of peace that was forgotten in the horrors of war.

In this experience, we will welcome you to our house, where we will talk about the Mykonian culture, history and culinary traditions. You will have the opportunity to learn how to make your own souvlaki, make tzatziki sauce with products from local farms, chop fresh vegetables, stuff your pita bread and teach you how to wrap it.
We will grill and explore together all the unlimited forms, pork, chicken, tangled with various materials other than the classic tzatziki.

Memories From My Childhood!
It was a ritual!

The taste always refers to images but brings us back to personal memories. During my childhood in Greece, I always remember the local tavern cooking souvlakia during summertime and the smell travelling on all the houses.
As we all had the windows open to get some fresh air and cool down from the heat it was impossible to not smell them.
Many times I fought with my mother to let me eat one for dinner rather than what she had prepared for me. I don’t think I wanted to eat them because of the taste – but because of the whole procedure.
I enjoyed the fact that I was going in the hot afternoon to the tavern with 200drachmes on my pocket and ordered 1.
As I was waiting I was looking at how the owner grilled the meat and the pita bread with a bit of olive oil and oregano.

Can't wait to welcome you

Fantastic dinner! My husband and I had a wonderful time! We learned to make souvlaki and it was delicious! Georgia was so interesting and we had great conversation. She is also a sommelier and taught us how to taste and appreciate wine. Highly recommend!

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we were picked up. Georgia told us stories of her experiences and made us feel at home. The souvlaki was to die for, and the we can’t wait to try make it for ourselves. The wine was also lovely. All in all a magnificent afternoon.
