What to expect
First, we visit a unique olive oil mill where the olive oil tasting will take place. The expert there will explain to you everything concerning the extraction of olive oil and you will explore the room of production. You will have a Greek coffee before continuing the tour. We arrive at the picturesque village of “Nippos” around 11:00. After a walk of 15 minutes, we reach the square of the village and the traditional taverna, where the first glass of raki will help you prepare for the cooking class. Mrs. Despoina, our lovely cook, will be waiting in order to start the traditional Cretan cooking class. Suit up and be impressed by the quality of the organic products, literally picked up from the backyard of their garden. You will learn how to make delicious ntako, the classic tzatziki, lachanontolmades, gemista, Greek salad and the traditional "phyllo" dough for the famous Cretan cheese pies. After the cooking ends, lunch follows with the main dish prepared in advance by Mrs. Despoina. All this of course with unlimited raki, local wine and food stories. To finish your meal, enjoy a typical dessert of the Cretan diet, meaning fresh fruit, yogurt with honey or traditional spoon sweet.

More historical than gastronomical
Not a bad tour but 3 main issues... 1. Far too much focus on history and architecture for a food tour 2. Too few
