Our "Tastes of the Cyclades", which took place on Wednesday 24th June at the Metropolitan Hotel, was a huge success with one hundred and twenty guests of the Chamber enjoying the specially designed menu from Chef Christoforos Peskias.
Christoforos spoke about how he designed the Cycladic Menu and the nutritional value of the combined products while George Pittas, Writer, Head of “Ελληνικό Πρωϊνό” spoke within a multi-media presentation about “Gastronomy – A Trip to the Cycladic World”. Alexandros Kouris, Owner of the Cyclades Microbrewery at Tinos Island spoke about the special conditions under which NHSOS beer is produced and invited the guests to try the non-preservative beer, inspired by the rich colors and flavors of the Greek islands, the golden sun, the blue sea and sand of the Aegean Sea.
We would like to warmly thank our Sponsors for their products, our Supporters for their valuable gifts and our Guests for their presence and precious comments regarding the evening.
