A wonderful culinary experience. Eleni and Yannis offers their guest a close-to-ultimate experience to authentic cretan cuisine, accompanied with a bit of history, a lot of fun and good company. The happy couple will cook with you, show you secrets of the local cuisine, serve and join you for a fantastic dinner - a 4 hour experience. Cretan cuisine has... More

It wasn't just about the wonderful food which was delicious and the recipies that are easy enough for us to repeat when we returned home. We were made to feel part of the family and enjoyed learning about... More

We were in Crete in November 2013 researching for a cook book about Cretan cooking and were advised to meet Eleni and Yannis and let them teach us the secrets of their local cooking. This happened in a nice home kitchen with a very pleasant atmosphere as both are 100% devoted to teaching people the 'miracle of Cretan cooking'. We... More

Eleni and Giannis host this fabulous event due, in part, due to Greece's economic downturn. Both out of work, they decide to blend... More
