We start the day sampling the traditional Cretan breakfast in a local shop that has been crafting traditional pastries during four generations. We then step into the tastes and aromas of the old Municipal Market in town, sampling staple products such as bread, pies, honey, cheese, olive oil, and spices. We learn about different herbs, and vegetables and enjoy a cup of authentic Greek coffee.
Once on the alleys of the old town, we experience the most traditional backstreet culinary spots, visit districts, such as Turkish, Venetian, Christian and Jewish ones, stopping in unique hidden corners, gardens and having interesting conversations with local artisans.
We taste delicious local tapas and learn about the different influences, that all the civilizations which dominated Crete during the centuries have had on the Cretan diet.
For those interested in social media, sharing pictures and making an impact with images, I will show you some of the most breathtaking picture spots of the town.
