Swedish Chef Mats Loo was present until the end of the event to guide the taste buds of the Bloggers. Meaning, he was there to deepen the level of appreciation of the six writers who were invited to embark on a wonderful ride into the Greek Food Experience!
Chef Mats even showed everyone the proper way to drink (to further appreciate!) Greek Ouzo! Thank you, Chef Mats and thank you bloggers!
