Culinary Adventure

Crete, Greece

May 11th-18th, 2024

With its rich gastronomic heritage and exceptional flavours, Crete offers a culinary experience like no other. One of the highlights of Cretan cuisine is its emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients. From vibrant fruits and vegetables to fragrant herbs and aromatic olive oils, the flavours of Crete are lively and enticing. The island boasts olive groves aplenty, producing some of the finest extra virgin olive oils in the world! Little known in America, Greek wines are an exciting discovery. With its stunning landscapes, warm hospitality, and exceptional flavours, Crete truly embodies the essence of an Epicureans Culinary Adventure. It is a place where food becomes a journey, and every bite tells a story of Cretan traditions and centuries-old culinary wisdom.
