“Greek Summer is a state of mind… This year, enjoy your Greek summer wherever you are…” is the message of Greece’s new tourism campaign that will be sent out to the world this year, following the Covid-19 crisis.
In 2015 Jamie Oliver visited Ikaria, also spelled Icaria, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. That visit was part of his research into the important role of the food people eat in longevity. The residents of the island are known for their longevity and their nutritional habits.
During his visit he tasted local cuisine and specialities such as fried mullet, herb pie, pumpkin pie and broad beans with fennel.
