A Taste of Ikaria, Greek Supper Club
Sun, 23 April 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
Last summer, I visited the island of Ikaria, located in the Northeast Aegean, just southwest of the island of Samos. For many years the island was known as a place of exile for communists and where hippies liked to hang out. Not anymore....Ikaria, the island where people forget to die!
With a combination of a laid back lifestyle, a healthy daily routine (walks and naps) and a traditional Mediterranean diet, folks on Ikaria have longer lifespans than most of the world and it's now been designated a one of the five Blue Zones in the world.
The food on the island fresh, simple and always delicious. The landscape, rugged but breathtaking and the people of Ikaria, laidback, always kind...to neigbors and tourists.
Join me on Sunday, April 23rd at St. Lawrence Market Kithcen for a Taste of Ikaria, the island of longevity!
