ASPARAGUS, ANCIENT & PACKED FULL OF NUTRIENTS

Asparagus has been used as a vegetable and medicine, owing to its delicate flavour, diuretic properties, and more. It is pictured as an offering on an Egyptian frieze dating to 3000 BC. In Ancient times, Greeks ate it fresh when in season and dried the vegetable for use in winter. A recipe for cooking asparagus is in the oldest surviving book of recipes, Apicius’s third-century AD De re coquinaria, Book III.

Safeguarding Fish for Generations to Come
The islands of Greece are surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, so the ocean has played a substantial part in the culture of the country for thousands of years. In particular, the sea is vital to the diet of Greek islanders, so it is no surprise that fish often makes an appearance in the country’s traditional and modern cuisine.
