Learn the Ancient Art of Cheese & Bread Making near Chania
This class is for those who want to explore the history of cheese and bread making, and learn how to recreate Greek recipes and methods from the 5th century BC to the late Byzantine years. A light historical meal follows each class.
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
