MINOAN AND CRETAN COOKING EXPERIENCE

The Cretan diet is known as one of the healthiest diets in the world and it comes down to us from Minoan time. Nothing is left to chance. Olive oil, wine, honey, grains and herbs are five basic elements of Minoan and traditional Cretan diet that constitutes perfect nutritional value for people.

We will take you on a flavor journey from ancient times to today.

On the premises of equestrian club in our beautiful gardens, we have created MINOAN STYLE KITCHEN where you will learn to cook Minoan and Cretan.

We invite you every Tuesday at 11:00.

Once you have arrived, we will take you on guided tour around our gardens, and Minoan theater that we have created. We will prepare you for the journey in time, telling you stories about Minoans and today’s Cretans that only locals know.

Next we will cook together in an open air traditional MINOAN KITCHEN, over open hearth fire, using traditional Minoan style ceramic pots.

When your food will be simmering and getting ready, you will be able to meet our farm animals and horses.

The final part of the day will be our delicious meal that we will have all together in Mrs. Anna’s garden.
