Full description
Visit a traditional home in Vatos Village, where your local Cretan host will share all the knowledge of her family and traditional Cretan home. Taste freshly baked bread from a traditional oven. Chat with your host while you taste and enjoy some traditional Cretan meze snacks, wine, and Cretan raki. Afterwards, head to the kitchen, where you will learn how to make traditional Cretan dishes from your host. All guests will be given aprons, and most cooking ingredients will be readily available in the kitchen area. Your host will guide you through the whole procedure, allowing everyone to master their cooking skills.
