Vedema Resort Santorini Celebrates Local Flavors With 2013 Year of Gastronomy Events

With a climate of year-round sun fused with cool sea breezes, it?s no surprise Santorini fosters a host of scrumptious delicacies that have become essential to locals, and adored by chefs and foodies the world over. To celebrate the country?s rich agricultural and culinary history, 2013 Year of Gastronomy has been ushered in, and Vedema Resort is getting in on the action to commemorate its 20th anniversary.

Back at the village of Megalohori, where the historic resort surrounds the village?s 400-year-old wine cellar, they will be offering a wealth of activities to educate and entertain guests through the island?s local products?from photography exhibitions, to cooking classes for children and adults, vineyard tours, wine-tasting sessions and herb-foraging trips. Both in-house and around the surrounding village, the Vedema Resort is giving patrons the chance to not only taste traditional flavors, but pick up Mediterranean cooking techniques to pack up and take home.
