WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2022 / -- Gourmands will taste the real Greece on the third-largest island of Rhodes. This island has been famous since Ancient Greece for the palate-pleasing and famously exclusive gastronomy and wine. Rhodian cuisine ranges from customary cafes to time-tested tavernas and refined fine dining.

Foodies from all over the world choose Rhodes to taste the blend of civilizations, the traces of history, the gems of nature, and the brilliant combination of tradition along with its cosmopolitan atmosphere. Cosmopolitan and modern, traditional and ancient, spectacular yet unspoiled, Rhodes constitutes a unique island landscape in the Aegean; A sea full of adventures, experiences, and myths reflecting on every single dish served!”

On the typical table set on Rhodes, food is accompanied by extremely delicious bread, which is traditionally home-made (countryside-style with fermented rye). Buns, cheese pies, oil buns and small pies with honey, cinnamon and clove are also baked in these ovens. The holy liquid of god Dionysos, wine, has been a main feature on the typical table of Rhodes ever since the ancient times and remains one to this day. The wines produced on the island are considered to be among the best in the world.

Sweets of Rhodes are the traditional Greek spoon sweets. These are seasonal fruits (quince, plume, orange, chestnut, apricot, cherry etc.), which must be of excellent quality, preserved in sugar. Well-known sweets are "galaktoboureko", "baklava", "kadaifi", "melomakarona", "simigdalenios chalvas", "ravani" and "samali". Any true gourmand must try the ancient and modern delicacies of “Pouges", "Tsirigia", "Kapamas", Tzatziki, Greek traditional salad,"Gemista", "Giaprakia", "Makarounes", “Mousaka" and "Pasticcio".
