Naxos in TRIMED project about Mediterranean diet
11 January 2005
Naxos is participating in the TRIMED project in the framework of the Culture 2000 programme of the European Union, with the participation of other Mediterranean islands such as Majorca, Malta, Corsica, Cyprus and Sicily.
The main objective of this initiative is to present the culture of the so-called Mediterranean trinity of bread, wine and oil in the pre-industrial period through the remains of material, architectural and intangible heritage, to nurture the training of professional restaurateurs in the use and application of traditional techniques and materials, and to promote the said products in European gastronomy. The project is planned to come to an end in September 2007.
