In the ancient times a first settlement in Zakynthos was created in 1600BC by a man called Zakynthos, the son of Dardanos, king of Phrygia. Soon the island became part of Arkeisios's kingdom of Kefalonia and his successor Odysseus, the eminent hero of Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey.
As almost all of Greece’s regions, Zakynthos enjoys its own local and traditional cuisine featuring unique ingredient combinations of the Mediterranean “genre”, embodying an Italian and French touch, long gastronomical remnants of the old Venetian and French rule.
