The joy of gathering around the table is typical Cretan. In everyday life, culinary culture is closely connected to family values, and the Greeks often gather several generations together around the table. They create an intensive atmosphere and by atmosphere we don’t refer to candles and exclusive china.

Traditional plates are influenced by the foreign powers who were ruling on Crete during centuries of occupation. Spices came from the east, macaroni came with the Italians but the most important ingredients is local – the olive oil.
