Life in Crete: little tips
- New tastes. Don’t hesitate. Just go for it. After all, tasting new things is the quintessence of gastronomy.
- Traditional products. The best souvenir from Crete. Take with you as many as you can. You will not find them again any time soon.
- Cretan herbs. Nature’s pharmacy and the secret of Mediterranean Cuisine. Learn about them from locals or - much better - gather some from the mountains.
- Philosophy. Cretan lifestyle. Sit down at a traditional kafeneion, have some raki along with a raw artichoke or fresh broad beans or fruit or whatever they offer you and just hear the stories. There is truth in them.
