    The CD was developed as a tool promoting local gastronomy from touristic perspective with the help of the information technology. Its main menu consists in an introductory section highlighting relevant historical and traditional aspects of the Thessaly traditional diet and cuisine and four sections dedicated to the four significant geographical areas with specific cuisine traditions. It presents the historic evolution of the diet in the area, and its specifics as compared with southern Greece diet and includes regional traditional dishes recipes. Each area is presented from geographical and historical point of view and this information is completed with data about its gastronomic identity, about local traditional festivities and with a map of the region.
