Making the art of Greek cuisine known abroad and attracting tourists that select holiday destinations based on the local cuisine was the goal of the 2nd International Aldemar Gourmet Touring that took place in seven countries and 11 cities across Europe and Russia between Jan. 31 and Feb. 21.

Award-winning chefs from the Aldemar Hotels and Spa Group met with 360 travel agents in state-of-the-art cooking studios giving them the chance to not only to taste Greek dishes but also to learn how to prepare them.

The gourmet touring group traveled to Berlin, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Milan, Paris and Brussels, as well as to the Russian cities of Samara and St. Petersburg.
