Limnos-Honored Gastronomic Destination, Gastronomy Days 2013
For this year’s festival, we selected the island of Limnos as the “Honored Gastronomic Destination” during Gastronomy Days.
In cooperation with the Municipality of Limnos, the Food Science and Nutrition Department of Aegean University, local institutions and producers, we have planned and we present you an inter-theme group of activities aiming at the mapping and promotion of the historical and modern Limnos gastronomic civilization.
During the ancient years, Limnos was the granary of Aegean. Nowadays, local institutions, producers and teams unify their forces having as target to develop a benchmarking gastronomic tourism marketing model that will combine Limnos gastronomic heritage with a modern proposition of local growth.
Our synergies with Limnos local institutions proved in practice the contribution of “Honored Gastronomic Destination” concept to the achievement of the objectives of Gastronomy Days.
