an urban picnic


Where is the fun? Are you too buried under a ton of duties? Well it’s high time we took the simple joys in life more seriously and Μadame Gâteaux has the “know-how”.


Pick a sunny day during the week, call a friend, fill your basket with savoury and sweet goodies and you are ready to go! We know it’s quite hard to find a decent outdoor spot to host a picnic in Athens, but the park next to Megaron will definitely reward you.



Μadame Gâteaux had prepared her outrageously tasty delicacies including pink lady apple, brie, prosciutto and arugula buns, carrot & cheddar finger sandwiches, cranberry jam linzer biscuits, cocoa & matcha tea marble cake with bitter chocolate glaze. We also had assam tea, a full bodied, black tea from northeastern India, strong and perfect for the morning hours, rich, hearty and very aromatic.

Are you hungry too? Μadame Gâteaux shares each and every recipe on her blog! Be sure to try them at home, then pack your goodies carefully and experience a day on the grass!


Thank you Μadame Gâteaux for the exceptional day we spent together! For more info about Calliope’s great work, be sure to visit her website, her Facebook and Instagram page.
