ShoreTrips says...

Food is a key element in getting to know a culture. The Cretan table represents a return to balance and companionship, and is an age-old journey entrenched in history.

This market-to-table interactive cooking activity is designed to offer participants a genuine insight into the island's cuisine. The program highlights the simple, healthy, and flavorful foods of Crete with traditional recipes that have been passed from generation to generation. Friendly and informal, it features hands-on instruction and home-cooked, seasonal food, along with cheese, wine, and olive tasting. The group is kept small (8 people maximum) to ensure an intimate setting.

Your cooking class will be hosted just in the outskirts of Chania at a local olive oil estate, a winery, or a rural retreat, exact location is dependent on number of participants and weather. Each venue has been selected for its character and ambiance as the perfect backdrop. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, you'll discover how to prepare a number of dishes under the direction of a local cook. This unique culinary experience culminates at the table, where you'll enjoy the delectable food, Cretan wines, and fabulous company.
