The Illustrated Food and Cooking of Greece (Illustrated Food & Cooking of)
If you take a look at a map of Greece you will see why fish is such an important part of the Greek diet.
The cheapest fish are sardeles (sardines), gavros (anchovies), kolios (mackerel), gopa (bogue) and marides (smelt). Also in this inexpensive category are kalamari (squid), though the frozen variety which is usually, if not always, imported from California, China and other far away places. When kalamari is in season they will tell you on the menu that it is fresh. When cut and fried it is usually frozen but fresh kalamari is grilled or fried whole. In the kalamari family is also thrapsala which to you and I looks like a squid and tastes like a squid but is not a squid.

The Food and Wine of Greece: More Than 250 Classic and Modern Dishes from the Mainland and Islands
Santorini is famous for its sunset and its unique caldera, but
the island now has a wine-growing industry that should not be
overlooked. When dining out in Santorini, we noticed that all
the wines offered are Greek wines and many of these are produced on the island.
To get to all these vineyards you do need to have a rental car. But if you drive, be careful about drinking. Alterntively, you can join a Santorini winery tour which can be booked with any of the sightseeing agencies on the island.
