A fantastic seminar that we attended with my classmate Ms. Triantafyllou Katerina

I also thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity to present the basic parameters of Celiac disease to the professionals in the area..

Γαστρονομικές-Περιπλανήσεις-στην-Πάργα-06 mamameli

The overwhelming majority of participants did not know anything about the disease and the issues of servicing people with celiac disease.

Their response was really touching as their questions (mostly in the breaks) were multiple and varied.

Γαστρονομικές-Περιπλανήσεις-στην-Πάργα-05 mamameli

I wish I have helped, with my minimal presence, the companies to understand the peculiarities of the preparation and creation of a meal for people with celiac disease.

As a whole, this seminar has been a comprehensive proposal for catering professionals, chefs, caterers (restaurants, bars, cafes) and hotels, as well as all those involved in customer service in a food business. And it was complete in both the theoretical and practical parts.

I personally wish warmly and cordially congratulations to the organizers and participants of this event.

I wish such attempts to push the economy and the quality of tourism in the area of ??Parga (and not only), so that it can be promoted nationwide and worldwide – in addition to the natural beauty of its landscape – and the quality of visitors service and convenience of this area.
