In this episode of the Find Dining Podcast, Giorgos Maltezakis of Cretan Paths talks to us about the food scene on the Greek island of Crete. We discuss olives, cheese, and minotaurs.

  • Check out the three-day potato festival in Psychro in August
  • Sample some eftazimo (seven kneaded bread)
  • Learn the myth of the minotaur before you head to Crete
  • You can visit the remains of the palace of Knossos
  • Taste some cheese: kefalotiri, anthotiros, mizithra
  • Sip some raki (or tsikoudia), the “shnapps” of Crete

 

Food for Thought
