Food and the City

from 114€

An introduction to the city of Heraklion could not be more fun than with the exploration of its hidden flavors. A city full of history, partly very evident and partly undercover in the alleys and small pathways, waiting to be explored on foot - a walking tour full of flavors. Allow us to show you


Our walk starts from the old harbor where history unfolds in front of our eyes. We make our first stop for coffee and taste the different flavors and aromas. Then we continue through the central market and into small alleys to discover the flavors produced from an Artisan Cheese maker. Cheeses of Crete are well known for their intense flavors and versatility to be used in a great variety of recipes. Cheese needs bread, so our next stop is the local four-generation family-run artisan bakery who takes us on a journey of flavors through a wide variety of products that come out of the ovens of his bakery. People of Crete have a very close relation with dry nuts. As a powerful nutritious source and a companion of Cretan life, dry nuts are introduced in a brief but flavorful stop in the central market of the city. 

An essential element of Cretan cuisine is the many herbs and their powerful effect on our wellbeing and good health, well known to the Cretans since antiquity. At the local herbal shop we learn from this delightful specialist about the natural potency and properties the Cretan soil and variety of uses of the many different herbs.

Finally we enjoy lunch with a variety of dishes that highlight Cretan and Greek cuisine.
