Cultural events and activities
The Greek Diet-from the Greek word «δίαιτα» (diaita) which means «way of living»-derives from a set of skills, knowledge, practices and traditions, extent from the landscape to the cuisine, which in the Greek culture includes the crops, harvesting, fishing, conservation, processing, preparation and, ultimately, sharing food.In the Greek mentality, however, the purpose of this long process goes beyond the mere satisfaction of basic biological needs.
The “trapezia” - having friends and family over for a mealhave always been the main point of reference for deep and substantial communication among the people sharing the table and partaking the experience.
For Greeks, gathering around a table is the most important and most beautiful moment to unfold thoughts, concerns, dreams, laughter and all kind of emotions. It is the moment of care, offer and hospitality. Either joy or grief turns into a ritual around a table. These are the moments which help souls open up and really get close to one another. Thus, the events aboard Milos at Sea focus on all of these elements by promoting them in the best possible way.
In tune with the context above, various activities are organized during sailing, such as degustation and wine tasting, cooking classes such as phyllo pastry handling, or even fishing. Moreover, guests will have the opportunity to converse with members of the crew on topics of diet in relation to the identity, the place and the intangible cultural heritage.
