Breakfast In Hotels In Athens Greece

Recently many hotels in Greece and many hotels in Athens Greece especially have changed their policy regarding the offered breakfast in terms of quality and quantity and the have introduced to their breakfast menu traditional delicious and unique Greek recipes.

This is an initiative started in 2010 by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels. You can have a look with the philosophy of the program and the presentation of the idea in its website to the link below: http://www.greekbreakfast.gr

Philosophy of the program “Greek Breakfast”

The Greek Breakfast is an initiative taken by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels which utilizes and connects the cultural – gastronomic wealth of the country with the Greek hotel business. It is a program designed by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels which has been in operation since 2010 and whose aim is to enrich the breakfast offered in Greek hotels with pure and unique Greek products as well as with traditional local dishes from every region of Greece.

The aim of the “Greek Breakfast” program is to give Greek hotel guests the chance to know the gastronomic wealth of our country and taste at breakfast the innumerable Greek products and dishes which are at the heart of the Mediterranean Diet. The Mediterranean Diet is not just a modern dietary trend but is according to UNESCO the “intangible cultural heritage of mankind”. 

The main products of the Mediterranean diet such as the bread, the rusks, the olive oil, the olives, the yoghurt, the honey, the cheese products, the cured meats, the fresh vegetables, the legumes, the pies, the sweets and the fresh fruit form the basis of Greek breakfast.  

Each part of Greece, depending on the climatic conditions, the soil, the produced products and the cultural relations and exchanges, has formed a particular gastronomic culture and local cuisines. Although the foundation of gastronomy is common, each region has its own gastronomic treasures and so the characteristics of the Cretan cuisine for example differ from those of Macedonia, of Epirus, of the Peloponnese, of the Aegean islands etc……read more….  http://www.greekbreakfast.gr/en/project
