    It’s what Syros is all about!
    Robert_P, Sep 2023
    Maria is incredible! Her knowledge about local herbs and spices in cooking and how it relates to your health is unprecedented! One comes to Syros to be off the beaten path to get true local color. Maria doesn’t disappoint! I only wish we could bring her to America to cook for us! Thank you Maria for a truly wonderful meal and experience!
