Itinerary

We will start our tour by visiting a unique olive oil mill. We will taste exquisite olive oil in two different ways. Our expert there, will explain everything concerning the extraction of olive oil.
Our arrival at the small and picturesque village of “Nippos” will be around 11:00, were we will have a short walk through the village.​
We will end up at the square of the village and at the traditional kafeneio, where the first glass of raki for the day will help us prepare for our cooking class. Mrs. Despoina, our lovely cook, will be waiting for us in order to start the traditional Cretan cooking class. Suit up and be impressed by the quality of our organic products. You will learn how to make delicious ntako , the classic tzatziki, lachanontolmades, gemista and a Greek salad. Also, you will learn how to make the traditional "phyllo" dough, create the famous Cretan cheese pies.
After the cooking ends, lunch follows with the main dish prepared in advance by Mrs. Despoina. The main dish is usually chicken and potatoes in tomato sauce, a typical dish in every Cretan household. All this of course with unlimited raki, local wine (red or white) and...food stories.
