Narration

Orzo from Chios with vegetables

From the most delicious summer flavours from Chios, the island of mastic, meadows and beauty.

In you want to get to know the secrets and the heavenly flavours of Chios, you should definitely have a dinner at the well known Hotzas tavern … The hospitable owner Yannis Linos, who won my respect from the very first moment, will guide you to the secret world of local tastes.

I will never forget the first time I met him. The scent of the night-flowers in the garden gave their own stigma to the harmony of tastes. By taking a close up look at each of the decoration that you may find at Yannis’ tavern place, you will pick up a lot about the island’s history…
