Chef Competition

Competition: "A Taste of Greece" featuring PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) or ΠΟΠ


This year, the EMMYS Yacht Show's competitions will shine a spotlight on the culinary delights of Greece. Greece boasts an extensive range of agricultural products, including renowned items such as olives and olive oil, cheeses, wines, mastic, and saffron. These products have garnered international acclaim as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), earning prestigious distinctions for their exceptional quality and irresistible characteristics. Such recognition is not only a testament to the richness of Greek soil but also to the passion and traditional knowledge passed down through generations to the dedicated producers.
