‪Interesting evening of local cuisine.‬
לבד • אוג׳ 2015
‪A great evening out seeing how to make some traditional Greek starters, followed by an excellent meal with wine cooked by Maria and served under the trees at the village square. We were picked up by man from Ecotours who was very welcoming and told us lots of interesting facts about Crete and the way of life. More of a demonstration with a bit of participating rather than an actual cooking course.‬

‪Best evening in Crete‬
זוגות • יוני 2015
‪This is not a typical tourist event: sit on a bus for three hours going round hotels picking up other tourists, spend a hour getting a Disney local experience with all the individual attention of a sausage factory, then spend three hours on the bus dropping people back at their hotels.

The owner of EcoTours wants these evenings to feel individual and he succeeds. It lacks the polish of the production line tours but that is part of the experience. The group was us and another couple. The owner picked us up in his car and took us to a village outside town to a cafe/restaurant owner by Mrs Maria who demonstrates. Mrs Maria takes a while to warm up, the initial impression was of a lady who made Kanye West look cheerful and engaged, however, once my attempt at Tzatziki was accepted she cheered up.

After going though all the dishes, we relaxed under the trees of the village square to taste the cooking. The meal came with wine and drinks included. This was accompanied by explanations at every stage before being dropped back in town.‬

‪Our highlight of our 2 week Holiday in Greece‬
זוגות • יוני 2012
‪It's hard to put into words how much fun my wife and I had at the Cretan Cooking class we took while staying in Rethymnon. During our 2 weeks in Greece, we went to 4 different islands and our highlight of our trip by far was this cooking class.

The Review...
Not having a clue of how to get around in our rental car, Panos from the cooking class, met us at our hotel on his scooter and we followed him to the cooking school in our rental car. Once arriving, we were amazed at how cool the setting was. The cooking class is part of a building from the 17th or 18th century that used to be the Maids quarters of a large house. The wood oven that you cook in is the original oven that was used back in the day.

Our host for the class was a girl by the name of Nefeli who also acts as a translator for the Cretan Chef Haris (she was super nice and her translation was great). We started off by picking our own herbs in their garden to include in our meal. Then throughout the day, while taking WINE breaks we made our own bread, salad, pasta, and Lamb/Vegetable dish in the wood oven. The Goatsmilk to make our cheese for the salad and dessert cheese pie arrived by a scooter in a white pale (Really cool!). We then pasteurized the cheese to include in the salad and make yummy cheese pies.

After the food was all prepped and in the oven, we made our own Reiki, a strong liquor popular in Crete.

This was the one and only time we really felt what the Greek / Crete culture was all about. Nefeli, Panos and Haris along with his cousin, made us feel at home and we shared stories back and forth on Canadian and Greek Culture.

I can't say enough about the experience we had at the Cretan Cooking School! If you are in Crete, it is worth every Euro to do this‬

‪Learn to cook Crete's healthy food‬
חברים • אפר׳ 2012
‪The lessons are given in a suburb of Rethymno. You'll will learn how to make starters, main dishes and dessert and afterwards we eat all the food that was prepared. We helped the chefs and it was great fun. Of course we liked the food, because it was our own work. If you are looking for something different on Crete, than this is the activity to plann in your holidays on Crete‬
