Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
Leading food tours and wine tastings in Athens for more than 2 years, my passion for food and wine has led me to become an event host and community moderator for Athens Food & Wine Enthusiasts, a social dining meetup for people who love to experience Athens they way I believe it should be experienced: through its delicious food, through meeting people behind the city’s vibrant food scene and visiting places with soul and good vibes. I believe that everyone should experience Athen’s food and wine which is why I design personalized food and beverage experiences, according to what you want and your preferences. Taking a step back from generic one-size-fits-all food tours and activities and deliver an experience you will never forget. Building on my culinary skills and education, I received my culinary travel professional certification and passed with distinction the Level 3 WSPC HESTIA Advanced Certificate, to be able to give people the best information on Greek wine and spirits. This allows me to really pass on my knowledge and passion for Greek culture, food and wine.

What to expect at Marina's place
Marina managed to arrange an evening with John, Stavros and all of the team at Pantopolion Deli. This was the first time we have ever done something like this and it was really quite a treat so we'll defiantly be doing it again! Marina and John were really knowledgeable about all of the produce we tried and it came from all over Greece so we feel quite honoured to have tried such a variety of unusual delicacies. The discussions about olive oil and tasting were also really interesting and covered some finer points for usage that we'd never really considered. My wife is vegetarian, whereas the rest of our family eat meat and Marina and John did a superb job of providing authentic Greek food with lots of variety that kept everyone happy. (My boys agree that their favourite was the pork dish by the way!). All in all a lovely time with great hosts and some really delicious food. If you are reading this and wondering if you should try it I would highly recommend booking for a great experience.
