About Taste of Old Country

Elias Zarkadoulas
Premium extra virgin olive oils from all around the world

Taste of Old Country was created in April of 2014 by Elias Zarkadoulas, an aspiring entrepreneur, and proud father of 3 young boys.  The idea was brought to conception through years of planning, where Elias conceptualized a gourmet retail to consumer concept that would enable the everyday consumer here in the United States the ability to enjoy and appreciate the key nutritional elements that come from Oil and Vinegar and that he and his family enjoy on a day to day basis, with a variety of foods. His vision continued to expand and was fully completed in June of 2019 with the official grand opening of Taste of Old Country's artisan location in Balls Ford Center.  Now offering a true artisan experience similar to one you would find in Europe, Elias's concept provides something for all foodie's young and old!  You can visit Taste of Old Country to purchase all of your favorite Artisan products for the home, or if out with friends, drop in to enjoy an in-house Artisan food menu featuring a variety of small bites, unique paninis, signature salads, charchuterie boards, desserts, imported wine/beer and most importantly the Greek hospitality that Elias and his staff offer.  A very hands on person, you will find Elias daily at his olive and wine bar, as well as numerous pop up events, where he promotes Taste of Old Country's concept and products.
