Greece’s wealth of Fungi: the mushrooms and truffles

Greece has a wonderful variety of mushrooms, and in more recent years has become a prime spot for cultivation of high quality truffles. It has also been found to be prime ground for hinting wild ones. Of course, regions favorable to the cultivation of truffles and mushrooms abound in other delights- mountain air, forests, rich soil, and unspoiled beauty. Greece has two magnificent destinations for a novel sort of gastronomic tourism, ideal for those who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and working up an appetite in the mountains before they sit down to a serious gourmet meal.

Tsipouro: Tyrnavos, Mount Olympus, Vergina & Dion sites

After the olives harvested and pressed for oil, and the grapes picked and pressed for wine, a treasured third fall ritual takes place — the making of Tsipouro. This aromatic strong spirit is made of the marc- the skins and seeds and pulp- leftover from pressing the grapes for wine.

But blends of aromatics make each batch unique (these are, of course, a secret).

Kozani’s Fragrant Treasure: The Saffron of Kozani

The saffron of Kozani counts among the highest quality saffrons of the world. But here, it’s not called saffron, but rather “crocus”- for the flower that produces it. And the crocus, in turn, is named for the mortal Crocus, who in Greek Mythology was turned into a flower by the gods- either by Hermes who was devastated at accidentally killing him in a game of discus, or by the gods who mercifully transformed him into the flower to save him from the despair of his unhappy love affair with the nymph Smilax.
