Dining in Santorini was an enjoyable highlight of my trip! The volcanic soil and evening humidity produces the most amazing naturally-grown tomatoes and other produce…ripe and juicy. Tomatoes are a staple in many Greek dishes, as well as the use of olives. If you enjoy wine, there are also a number of local vineyards to tour. I ran by miles of vineyards every morning 🙂
Amy (one of my besties) and I enjoyed the cuisine so much that we booked a private cooking lesson at The Bone Restaurant, near Center City Thira. It was enjoyable to watch George, the head chef, magically whip up amazing dishes with such ease. I was also tremendously grateful for how he modified his recipes to provide a gluten-free option for me!
If you have an opportunity to enjoy a lesson with George, make sure you are hungry. Our menu included a santorini salad, fava with capers, tomato fritters with yoghurt sauce, shrimps saganaki, and pork tenderlon with vinsanto sauce.
