Creating each pot is a unique moment. The ability that clay gives you from a piece of amorphous matter to create objects that will make everyday life more beautiful give it invaluable value. The hours I go to the atelier are for me a source of energy and relaxation, and that’s what I’m looking for those who visit my atelier. The workshop is located 16 kilometres from Heraklion ( acces only with car ), in a unique location in the nature, with a spectacular view of Cretan mountains. The area around offers many opportunities for walking and visiting the nearby villages.

A unique place in the Cretan culture and the musical tradition of Crete, hold its traditional musical instruments. The roots of some musical instruments in Crete are lost in the depths of the ages. In the archaeological excavations of Knossos and Phaistos, representations of sculptures, ceramics and painting are depicted by musicians and dancers who point to the present day, where the lyre plays in the middle and the dancers dance around it cyclically. The ancient Cretes used to play the ancient lyre, as shown by representations in frescoes and seals. The presentation of folk instruments lasts for 1,5 hour and after a 1 hour break we continue with a nice evening in Dalabelos Estate Restaurant where we play music with the instruments we presented earlier with treats, refreshments, raki and other products of the estate.

Cretan Cooking Classes in a magic garden

The experience starts in our blooming garden, where you learn about the Cretan culture, history, culinary customs, fresh ingredients, products, even about typical words that locals use to describe their food while sipping on a glass of indigenous Cretan wine. You will have the chance to make simple but mouth-watering cold starters and ask your adviser questions and cooking tips so to recreate all, when back home. Then, it’s behind the scene, in our kitchen with your sleeves rolled up, to get involved with preparing and cooking your main creation. Along with our chefs, you may select classical Cretan dishes, as well as ones with a modern twist. Once everything is cooked and flavours are soaked up, it’s time to sit to the table tucking into your handmade masterpieces under the candlelight, sharing feelings, laughter & food as Cretans do. Meze, appetizers, main course, dessert is there but this wouldn’t be a typical Cretan culinary feast without slowly savouring every drop of your raki!
