Fantastic tour of all things food with Mike in Athens. Walking, eating and talking around the busy and quieter spots of the city. Learning random facts about Athens/Greek food (like why feta is called feta!), a little of the geography of Greece and about lives of locals. Baked goods, olives, markets, food, food, food… Show up hungry and leave full!!
