Our walking food tour combines tasty food tasting, food history, politics and culture.
It begins with a light breakfast and unforgettable Cretan beverage but since Arabs, Jews, Venetians, Ottomans, Greeks from Asia Minor and immigrants have passed through Κhania, adding their flavors to the local cuisine, we will follow their trail. Therefore, we will experience a multisensory food event and delectable delicacies from one-of-a-kind specialty food shops while enjoying the opportunity to understand better the culinary history of the city and how the locals eat.
Our walk ends with a dive into the distant past. We will visit the the archaeological site of Kastelli or/and the archaeological museum of Chania to view selected cooking vessels and to experience them more in depth. We will then visit a ceramic workshop or a local taverna, where we will have a chance to enjoy a short lesson in ancient cooking and we will be treated to home-baked bread -made according to ancient baking method- and other fine delicacies of historic Cretan and Greek gastronomy.
