Sani Gourmet 2022
Since 2006, Sani Gourmet has brought together cultures, flavours and traditions from around the globe, with each year dedicated to a new gastronomic theme. In 2022, in recognition of the festival’s 15th year, we celebrated the Greek culinary scene. A scene that is varied in its many culinary offerings, where contemporary Greek chefs embraced the gastronomic elements of a multitude of cuisines and seamlessly fused them with their own culinary backgrounds - each putting their own unique twists to well known and much loved dishes.
