The richness and quality of this island's products over the centuries has created a cuisine with a unique flavor, freshness and authenticity. The nature of Crete has all the variety of necessary raw materials and human experience to create unique flavors, combined with the seasons and the natural environment of the island in a great section.
Cheese, honey, herbs and many other products of the Cretan mountains form the basis for the miracle of the Cretan cuisine.
The Cretan diet is now recognized as the most representative example of the so-called Mediterranean diet, which is based on vegetables, legumes, fruits, cereals, combined with the use of olive oil, and contributes to longevity and well-being .
The Cretan cuisine is one of the oldest and most delicious culinary traditions in the world, with a variety of delicious and aromatic delights. The secret of the Cretan diet is one hand to the rich variety of the products of the Cretan land and the other in olive oil, which is used in almost all dishes.
If we wanted to capture the Cretan diet in the 1960s, we would say that the core of the diet consisted of food from plant sources, but food of animal origin were more regionally. In general, seasonal food were consumed, which were products of the region. Fresh and dried fruits, legumes, vegetables, wild native grasses and herbs, unprocessed grains and nuts, which favored the cultivation of the region's climate, eaten in abundance and were the basis of the Cretan diet during this period.
Dairy products were consumed daily in low to moderate amounts. Poultry and fish consumed weekly also, in moderate amounts, while red meat consumed only a few times a month. The main source of fat was olive oil, which was used both in salads, and in the preparation of food, in contrast to northern European countries, which were consuming mainly animal fats.
Another key feature of the Cretan diet in 1960 was moderate alcohol consumption, mostly in the form of red wine that accompanied the meal. Finally, daily dessert were fresh fruit and a variety of traditional sweets based honey consumed a few times a week.
We can organize culinary activities with the oldest cretan dishes. After a short seminar you can taste them instantly in Manoli's taverna, 50 meters from our accommodation. MANOLI' S TAVERNA MENU
