Dates for the 2011 Sani Gourmet Festival have been revealed as the 13th - 22nd May 2011. Set in the lush surroundings of Sani Resort, Halkidiki, Greece, this year the festival will be focusing on New Greek Cuisine, showcasing the delicious variety of Greek gastronomy and its superb combination of tradition and innovation!

The 2011 Sani Gourmet Festival will showcase today's finest Greek cuisine, further strengthening the country's position as a world leader in fresh delicious gastronomy. It is the desire to place Greece firmly on the global culinary map that has been the driving force behind the 2011 Sani Gourmet Festival and the inspiration of its theme, New Greek Cuisine. Sani Resort has a strong history of supporting the efforts of top Greek chefs, who inspired by the culinary traditions of their home country take traditional recipes, modifying and adapting them to the contemporary world.

For the sixth annual Sani Gourmet Festival - Greece's premier gastronomic event of international credibility - Sani Resort is inviting chefs who are distinguished for their knowledge, experience and passion to display the new dynamics of Greek cuisine and its superb combination of tradition and innovation. In the spirit of friendly rivalry, the guest chefs will be launching a debate on New Greek Cuisine, bringing into focus its special properties and qualities. These chefs will delight guests and festival goers using many of the much loved ingredients that Greece is famous for.

Delicious and imaginative menus will highlight the diversity of culinary delights available reflecting the country's landscape and its extraordinary variety of flavours and foods. The secret of Greek haute cuisine lies in the simplicity of the ingredients and preparation. Chefs will optimise the use of natural indigenous ingredients that can be found both in the heart of the mainland and on the country's islands. For centuries Greece has been used as a meeting point for Eastern and Western cultures, thus combining the different tastes and textures from all over the world.

With meat, poultry, fish, fresh vegetables and scrumptious fruits all in abundance guests will experience the very best in quality and gastronomic innovation that New Greek Cuisine has to offer. This week of events will demonstrate the truth of an age old saying - 'beauty lies in simplicity!'
