The Cretan cuisine, with its olive oil as a base, is a way of life. The subtropical climate and the rich soil have created a food tradition that has passed down through generations. Have a taste with our selection of eating packages that you need to pre-order - either the more extended breakfast or the brunch/dinner option.
This more luxurious breakfast includes Greek yoghurt, muesli, traditional seasonal spoon sweets/marmalade, home-made Cretan cheese pies, local honey, dried fruits, traditional smoked pork, mizithra or other seasonal fresh cheese, additional eggs,
mountain tea and fresh bread that the baker brings every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The brunch/dinner option inspires to late awakenings and protracted brunches or easy dinners to go with that glass of wine on the balcony during sunset. It consists of Cretan cheese pies, home-made pasta of local eggs and goat milk, traditional smoked pork, mizithra or other seasonal fresh cheese, honey, feta cheese, olives, traditional hard bread, mountain tea, fresh pizza dough, onions, garlic and fresh bread from the baker every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Great wine makes people happy - it´s a well-known fact! There are always a few bottles of wine from local wineries in the house waiting when you arrive, selected by Anna Maria, a certified sommelier. Cretan wine is on the upswing worldwide, as more people discover how the Cretan fruitful soil makes for magnificent terroir.
Anna Maria, born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts but with Greek roots, will also upon agreement gladly come to the house and do an extended wine tasting where the history of Cretan wine is unraveled.
It´s a rare luxury to have your own garden at hand, but in Crete a lot of locals have their own plot of land, small as it may be. And don´t be surprised if you find us there, poking in the soil, planting something new or picking for ourselves for our lunch.
