Food lovers and cooking enthusiasts are invited to learn how to prepare traditional Cretan dishes with Christos, an experienced chef at a local beachside taverna. Christos will teach you the secrets of healthy Mediterranean cuisine in a very fun and informal way. Only fresh, seasonal ingredients are used – the majority of which are bought at the local market first thing in the morning. After helping Christos prepare a number of delicious regional recipes, you will eat together looking out over the beach and Souda Bay, whilst Christos entertains you with many fascinating and hilarious stories.
For Wine Enthusiasts we can arrange a trip to a local winery in the foothills of The White Mountains, near Vrysses. The winery was built by the amiable owner, Andreas, on land that was passed down to him by his father who had always grown grapes on this land. Andreas designed the winery himself and built it using local stone, pine and cypress. He works with his wife, son and daughter, and this small family business amazingly produces 300,000 bottles of wine a year for both local consumption and for export.
