The Corfiot cuisine is typically Mediterranean. Since ancient times, gastronomy in Greece has played a vital role in people’s lives, not only in respect of nutrition but also as a very important social and cultural activity.
Corfiot cuisine includes all the world-renowned traditional Greek dishes. However, due to the particular climatic conditions of the island and its diversified historical past, of which the Venetian period was the longest and the most influential, Corfu’s cuisine includes a large number of specialty dishes that are not to be found in any other part of Greece.
Corfu dishes, very popular both with locals and visitors alike, are rich in colour, taste and imagination and embody an essential facet of Corfiot life to give a memorable experience.
