Crete - Under the Grecian Sun-3
Rethymnon and the culinary bounty available

A 15-year scientific study of seven diverse countries confirmed that the Cretan village farmers of the 1960's had the best health and longevity in the world. The diet of Crete and Southern Italy became the foundation for the famous Mediterranean Diet.

Crete - Under the Grecian Sun showcases Crete's bountiful food traditions and tables, both ancient and modern, vibrant and vital villages, wisdoms of the Yia Yias (grandmas),working farm-to-table agritourism sites, contemporary hotels and spas, sun-soaked sandy beaches, goddess-centric ancient Minoan culture, archaeological splendors of rich history, and natural majestic landscapes reminiscent of a Tuscany on the Aegean Sea. Cretan culture today is a blend of mainly Greek along with touches of Venetian & Turkish influences.  Its cuisine is forever an ethnic cornucopia of tastes and smells using the freshest local ingredients and time-honored recipes.

This delicious, fun and informative program is the next best thing to actually being in Crete!
