I am the co-founder of Tasting Crete. A unique spot that creates gastronomic experiences in Heraklion City Center, based on the food culture of Crete. After spending many years abroad and completing my Ph.D. in Anthropology, I decided to return to my hometown and focus on food tourism. The last 6 years I have invested all my time and energy in highlighting the magnificent food and the amazing flavors of Crete through the histories of its people. Together with my business partner, we have created Tasting Crete, where people can explore, learn, and interact through gastronomic experiences.

Georgios and his mother organized this event specially for me, they are both wonderful people with an incredible amount of knowledge and a passion to share. As soon as I walked in I felt right at home, the space is beautiful and fully equipped. I learned an amazing amount about Crete’s history, food and culture plus learned to make some very nice dishes. At the end we had a lunch together trying all the things we cooked. A unique experience for people who are looking to learn about the real Crete.
