In Greece people don’t eat to live, they live to eat!! It seems that Greeks’ relation to food is quite different, compared to the average European; happy and sad moments, celebration and mourning, all occur around a table laden with food. Hence the question “what’s to eat?” is heard everywhere, always. The kitchen in every modern house is inseparate from the living room and in the older village houses, the kitchen was the living room! Obviously, food is an essential part of Greek culture and therefore a subject of cultural research.
Greek cuisine reflects the rich agricultural production of our small and yet blessed country and gives us even today indirect information about the land’s economy, history, social life, customs, and even about the people’s religious beliefs!
Cooking on Crete island
The cuisine of Crete, being a crossroad island, has been influenced, at different times, by both western and eastern Mediterranean cultures.
During your stay and culinary workshop, you will not just learn to cook but to experience with all your senses the journey from the heart to the stomach and from nature to the table.
Apart from the cooking classes our package also includes cultural activities and excursions around culinary art.
