Mystery 49 Symposia #4

Mystery 49 Symposia #4

Mystery 49 Symposia is an opportunity to meet and eat together; to exchange gastronomic traditions, stories, and manners; to come a little closer to each other through our most unpretentious yet most sensuous daily habit.

Contributors:

In collaboration with the island folklore associations of Elefsina: the Elefsina “Archangel Michael” Symian Cultural Association, the Thriasian Plain Corfiote Union and “Saint Spyridon” of Megara, the “Saint Markella” Elefsina Chian Union, the “Archangel Paermiotis” Dodecanese Association of Elefsina

Location:

Courtyard of the Church of Agios Dimitrios, Kalymbaki. Find out HERE the specific location.

In the Framework:

Nutrition and food are some of the most important elements of cultural history; it’s not only what we eat, but how we eat it. From the selection of raw material and the journey it makes to reach our plate to the way we process and serve it, but also from the traditions, taboos, conditions of coexistence and conversations that accompany our meals, one can draw valuable conclusions about ourselves and our lives.

Or, as Jean François Bergier says, time and geometry, goods and people – it is all reflected on the plate. Through a series of activities in the form of extended public banquets enriched by local folk music, we focus on food and the cultural exchange that accompanies it. This time, our invited participants are the folklore associations from the Greek islands that are based in Elefsina and comprise the mosaic of its human geography.
