Food Odyssey: A Historical Culinary Walking Tour of Chania
When people think of Chania, Cretan food naturally comes to mind. However, Chania was also home to a variety of diverse cultures that influenced the tastes of the city.
I am an experimental archaeologist-food historian, who recreates Greek historical recipes using ancient or modern techniques for spectacular food events.
In 2000 I founded 'Greek Culinary History & Cooking Adventures' to create interactive, edible experiences that bring historical Greek gastronomy to life through experimental, sensory and public archaeology.
My work takes many forms, including history -themed dinners, historic cooking courses, edible installations, and historical food walking tours.
The walking food tours showcase Cretan gastronomy, culture and history in a unique and attractive way to whoever comes to Chania, with a need to understand and experience the historic and at the same time modern, adventurous and enigmatic city by using all the senses.
I am the author of a Gourmand award-winning cookbook, The Language of Taste, which is a dictionary (in Gr.) of the history and culture of Greek food and the founder and organizer of the biennial Symposia of Greek Gastronomy (conference).Read more
