About this activity
Use the knowledge that will get passed onto you from the expert chef, and learn about hundred-year-old recipes that have been passed down through generations. Prepare traditional Cretan dishes and learn tips and tricks that will make your cooking life easier!

Let our driver take you to the breathtaking countryside of Heraklion in the comfort of a luxury vehicle and delight in a beautiful track through the Cretan villages. Ony some 30 minutes outside Heraklion city, your cooking adventure will transpire in an off-the-beaten-path location looking out over herb-scented hilltops and the sea. There, you will meet an experienced couple of Cretan cooks that will practice Greek hospitality, welcome you and introduce you to the Cretan cuisine.

You will be taught step by step famous Cretan appetizers, such as 'dakos' – Cretan rusks topped with tomato and feta cheese - and 'dolmadakia' – stuffed vine leaves. Next, you will prepare the main course using only seasonal ingredients.

After all that hard walk, it is time to taste all those Cretan delicacies you cooked along with lots of delicious local wine. The relaxed atmosphere and imposing landscapes will make leaving a difficult task.

• Tzatziki - A yogurt, garlic and cucumber dip seasoned with herbs and vinegar
