Our cultural history has created recipes that highlight the most fresh and tasty ingredients, thus making Cretan cuisine famous worldwide, in terms of both the health benefits and also the taste. Come with us and visit a series of rural settlements and villages, meet the locals, experience the authentic cuisine, rich in unique experiences and flavors.

How

Our exploration of Crete begins in a small village, run by farmers who have cultivate the fertile surrounding grounds for centuries. We visit a women's corporative and we have a close look at how they bake and cook, using techniques passed down to them from their ancestors. These lovely ladies, with all their experience and knowledge, will teach how to create these local delicacies for ourselves.
Wine and people of Crete have walked hand in hand through the millennia, thus an introduction to contemporary wine production technics run by a couple of young scientist winemakers, is an integral part of your visit to Crete. Here we enjoy and compere the flavors of Cretan wines as they are developed, with the combination of scientific wine-making and the ancient terroir Cretan varieties.
We conclude our tour with a cooking demo, in a converted Minoan Settlement, a young chef demonstrates cooking techniques and executes local recipes that we will later enjoy, unfolding the richness of Cretan cuisine in front of your eyes and enlightening all of your senses.
