Gastronomy Santorini

Cocooning wouldn’t be the same without a king’s breakfast to get your day started.

GASTRONOMY

Cocooning wouldn’t be the same without a king’s breakfast to get your day started. Our freshly homemade, traditional breakfast can be enjoyed either in the privacy of your suite or on our stunning balcony, over-looking the Caldera and the Aegean Sea. Our healthy, balanced, organic breakfast includes choices such as freshly brewed coffee to your liking, a selection of organic teas, freshly squeezed juices, fresh fruits and jams, Greek yogurt and honey, and a wide variety of organic produce sourced locally, plus more delicious recipes to try when you order a la carte. And if you need your caffeine fix throughout the day, you can always use your personal Nespresso to make a smooth, aromatic cup of espresso.

Santorini is so unique for many reasons, one being its cuisine and local produce. The volcanic soil is responsible for the extraordinary taste of Fava, (yellow split peas, pureed to perfection), as well as the white aubergine (sweeter than the classic purple ones), domatinia (juicy, nectarous cherry tomatoes) and spicy capers, (both flowers and leaves are used in the local cuisine). The wine of Santorini is another chapter altogether. The excavations in Akrotiri show how wine making has been an integral part of the prehistoric dweller’s lives. The ash, lava and pumice left from the volcano eruption made for the perfect soil and the hot sun and strong winds dry up any dampness on the fruit, making exquisite fortified wines like the world-famous dessert wine Vinsanto. The indigenous white varieties include Assirtiko, Athiri and Aidani all three acknowledged as VQPRD (Vin de Qualité Produit Dans Une Région Déterminée) and very sought-after by any connoisseur visiting the island. Nykteri is another white variety, which matures in barrels and owes its name (Nykteri comes from nykta which means night) to the fact that vilification used to take place exclusively during the night to prevent oxidization).
