- 1/3 cup Greek olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 whole carrots, peeled and chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1 small head cabbage, chopped
- 8 cups water
- 1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt plus more, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- Juice of 1 fresh lemon
- Chopped, fresh parsley, to garnish
Add oil to a large soup pan and set the heat to medium. Add the onions and saute for about five minutes, or until translucent. Add the celery and carrots and saute for another five or six minutes, or until the carrots just begin to get soft. Add the garlic cloves and potatoes and saute until the potatoes begin to soften. Add the cabbage, water, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper and set the heat on medium-high. Cover the pan and let the soup come to a boil. When it does, drop the heat to about two or three and simmer the soup for about one hour, until all the vegetables are soft. Add the fresh lemon juice and fresh parsley just before ladling the soup into bowls.

The Museum of Prehistoric Thera houses finds from the excavations at Akrotiri, conducted under the auspices of the Archaeological Society at Athens, the earlier excavations at Potamos, made by members of the German Archaeological Institute at Athens, and rescue excavations at various other sites on the island, carried out by the XXI Ephorate of Antiquities for the Cyclades and Samos, as well as objects discovered fortuitously or handed over.

Koilalous, distinguished Greek and foreign contemporary creators from the world of fashion and art present works inspired by traditional Greek costumes and endorse the infinitude of greekness in fashion and aesthetics.
