Corfu

This week, Julia visits the lush Ionian island of Corfu, often called the least Greek of all the Greek islands.

Her trip begins in the capital Corfu Town where she discovers a surprising, cosmopolitan city more like a little slice of Italy than Greece. After sampling the delights of its famous kumquat flavoured ice cream, a cookery lesson in making Corfu's signature savoury dish, pastitsada, reveals the island's centuries-old love affair with exotic spices.

Her adventure continues in a magical forest of ancient olive trees, where she meets a pair of brothers who are passionate about revolutionising production of Corfu's oldest and most important export - olive oil. Julia ends her time on the island by trying out the secret to staying young that all Corfiots swear by.
