THE 5TH GASTRONOMY FESTIVAL MADE ALL GUESTS FEEL LIKE LOCALS
The 5th gastronomy festival of Lefkas took place at Marka square last weekend from 14th to 15th of July. The event was really a success for the local community and attracted many visitors of the island. Famous Greek chefs cooked local specialties and young students as volunteers offered delicious dishes to the public. It was a beautiful atmosphere for the guests which made them feel like locals.
INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION FROM 7 COUNTRIES
The Greek television and radio sponsored the event along with the official support of Greek National Tourism Organisation. Also young groups from Spain, France, Italy, Romania, Poland, Tunisia and Turkey took part with their own specialties. However it was the local products of Lefkada that were in the center of the public attention. Actually local salami and sausages were the main ingredients of each food that chefs looked for preparing their dishes.
MUSICAL HAPPENINGS DURING THE EVENT
Of course local singers and music bands offered some great performances and made the audience feel like locals. Local music from Lefkas and other Ionian islands entertained the people until late at night. Serenades or Cantades for locals were in fact love songs dedicated either to a girl or to an Ionian island. They used to sing them under a girl’s balcony with whom the singer was in love. All guests enjoyed very much the songs played during the festival especially from the Santa Maura music company.
HAPPY TASTY MOMENTS TO REMEMBER
The 5th gastronomy festival is a special event dedicated to a unique part of a travel which by no means we should not forget. The local food and products.

Thanks to all the people involved, especially the volunteers who tried very hard indeed, we enjoyed some happy tasty moments to remember.
