Location: Town

Travel to a peaceful, traditional village amidst the countryside of Heraklion in the comfort of a modern vehicle. Just 30 minutes away from the city, your cooking experience will take place in a traditional stone village looking out over herb-scented hilltops and the Aegean sea. An experienced couple of Cretan cooks will welcome you and introduce you to the earthly flavors of Cretan cuisine.

You will prepare step by step famous Cretan appetizers, like 'dakos' – Cretan rusks topped with tomato sauce and feta cheese - and 'dolmadakia' – vine leaves stuffed with a rice mixture. Next up, you'll cook the main course, which includes recipes such as lamb with artichokes or the traditional recipe of 'gemista' - stuffed vegetables - using only seasonal ingredients. Of course, one can't forget about dessert! You will roll out phyllo pastry and make delicious traditional pies with local cheese and honey, an unconventional, yet traditional, dessert of the region.

Time will finally come to taste all those Cretan goodies you’ve made, accompanied by lots of local wine. The friendly atmosphere and picture-perfect scenery will capture your senses on every level and you will return home with a whole new cooking skillset!
