Museum of Greek Gastronomy

The first-ever Museum of Greek Gastronomy has been opened in the heart of Athens, on Agiou Dimitriou Street in the Psyri district. The museum was born from the inspiration, determination and passion of four young people and their goal was to create a lively and diverse space where the values of Greek gastronomy and the incredible products cultivated on Greek soil would unfold through modern, interactive methods.

The project is housed in a grand, two-story neoclassical building dating back to the early 20th century. The creators renovated the building, putting all their love, knowledge and extensive personal effort into it. Just a stone’s throw away from Evripidou Street, the herb and spice capital of Athens, and a short distance away from the Varvakios Market where one can find meat, fish, seafood and all sorts of fruit and vegetables. The Museum of Greek Gastronomy aspires to fill its spaces with unique flavours, local products and traditional cooking methods and recipes from every era and area of the country. Visitors are invited on a journey of flavours through the history, culture and nutritional value of Greek gastronomy. Visitors to this unique museum will learn a great deal about how local products are made and how traditional recipes are prepared through screenings, audio-visual material, photography exhibitions, presentations of traditional folklore objects used in production, and other modern presentation methods. Tours focus on interactivity and on educating visitors about Greek gastronomy so that they can incorporate it into their daily diet.
