Great experience learning how to make 3 different types of Cretan bread, and the recipes to take away afterwards. It wasn't as completely hands on as I would have liked, but I still managed to try kneading the breads too, and had some tasty food to eat afterwards, so enjoyable overall! I finished my day with a Greek coffee, cheese and olive oil in the coffee shop with my fresh baked bread. The trip also included history of Crete and how people used to live, including the museum. Not being a fan of museums I wasn't excited to do this part, but actually I really enjoyed learning about how people used to live only a few decades ago, really interesting. Would recommend this experience.
This was a great way to get a wonderful feel and taste for the wine, olive oil and food in Crete. Our tour guide, Pierre, was so knowledgeable of the wine, the food and the history. Everyone involved worked together to make sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend to others.
Master baker Maria was ready with all ingredients necessary to make 3 different breads. Our guide, Evi, translated and we can try our new skills at home now. Thank you Eleni for printed recipes.
Lovely place, friendly people and great food. Highly recommend this as an experience, you learn a lot about Crete and it’s traditions as well as it’s food. Plus there’s great shops for gifts!
It was great Miss Maria was such a nice lady making the bread was fun, and the lady that gave us a tour was really nice as well(don’t remember her name)
