AN EPICUREAN JOURNEY THROUGH GREECE

Travel through Greece as we encounter some of the most enchanting culinary moments, experience authentic cooking traditions and explore delicious native ingredients. We journey through the rich Grecian gastronomy through the eyes of photographer Jo Yee.

EXPLORING UNIQUE LOCAL FLAVOR AND INDIGENOUS COOKING TRADITIONS

Cretan culture is built around magnificent local cuisine. From the traditional villages nestled high in the mountain regions, to the sun kissed coast line, joined by crystal clear waters, indigenous flavors permeate throughout the culinary experience. Authentic recipes in Greek cuisine source honey made locally and Cretan cheeses for dishes like ‘Mizithropita’ and ‘Ntolmadakia’. A perfect evening on the island of Crete involves a Cretan Feast, where you can sample all of the authentic flavors, meet the proud local Cretans and dance well into luxurious nights.
