Let’s head to Greece and taste a bit of Crete the slow way. Tasting Crete is an experience that brings people through the original tastes of Crete, which is an alternative way to get to know the island and its people.
The experience can take you from wineries and cooking classes to culinary events in the area. For example, one tour takes you to Tylissos-Kroussonas where you are introduced to the honey harvest of Crete from the Minoan times to today. They discuss the importance of honey in the nutritional habits of the people of Crete since the time of the Minoans.
Additionally they bring out tastes from the culinary traditions of the people of the mountains, take in the local art of the area through both religious and non-religious paintings and head to the rural village of Kroussonas.
Summer and fall are great times to head to Greece and island hop for a few weeks. Stop by Crete en route to experience cuisine at its best.
