The 5 Days Tasting Tour of Crete will immerse you in the history of the island while learning how its unique cuisine evolved.
The culinary heritage of Crete has evolved in harmony with the geography of the island: long coastal plains, rolling fields, isolated upland plains, elongated sandy and pebble beaches, countless small villages, century’s old olive groves and rugged cliffs. Surrounded by the sea, Crete enjoys a mild climate. The various types of fertile soil and short distance between coastal and inland areas has meant that high quality ingredients, these include herbs, olive oil, wine, cereal and vegetable crops, fruit, live stock, game and fish, are fresh and readily available. It is hardly surprising that Crete has become a centre for gastronomy.
