What you can expect?

Along with an expert team of local archaeologists, potters, and cooks from the Lassithi prefecture of Crete, you will have the opportunity to be part of an exclusive gastronomic experience that resembles the culinary culture and customs of the Minoan times, Europe’s first Bronze Age civilization.

The cooking class is inspired by the guidance of Jerolyn Morrison, a scholar in Minoan cooking utensils, with the classes bringing together the fields of archaeology, anthropology, and gastronomy and all the meals being made in authentic replicas of Minoan ceramic pots.

Additionally, the ingredients used in the classes will be local, fresh and the same that ancient Minoans used to put in their dishes, heavily based on seasonal products. Express your creativity through cooking, sip on some local wine and learn everything you want to know about the history of the region!
