Join us as we begin in Athens and then move to Tinos, where we’ll explore the island and its unique Easter traditions through food. We’ll visit historic and religious monuments key to Easter traditions, join village celebrations, meet local artisans, and take part in the preparation of seasonal ingredients. We’ll get out for short treks to experience the landscape and track down secrets that only can be discovered on foot. With our time in Athens as a perspective on contemporary Greek life, our sojourn in Tinos will be a deep dive into the traditional culture and cuisine of Greek island life, at the most festive of moment of the year: Easter.
