The traditional Cretan Diet is one of the best known examples of healthy nutritional models, as shown by many medical researches carried out until today. Its benefits are included in the special brochure given to our customers. For a better acquaintance with this diet but also with the traditional gastronomy, we organize a day activity, a short taste trip of "initiation" to the Cretan nutritional model.
This is a two-hour wandering across the vegetation of Enagron walking through a network of botanic paths. Together we discover how the greenery and paths of Crete have been linked with economy, mythology, religion and medicine from the ancient times until today. During our walk we can see, touch, smell and even taste different species of the plants that surround Enagron. At the end of the route we drink traditional herbal tea.
Traditional Bread and Cheese Making
We invite you to learn through simple practical instructions how to make your own traditional bread and cheese.
Our cook, Stavroula, takes us on a journey into the past when every woman used to make the daily family bread by herself. First, she shows us how to knead and then how to bake homemade bread in the wood oven.
Then, when our shepherd’s sheep produce fresh milk, Stavroula shows us how to make our own local cheese, the only cheese that can be tasted fresh and hot.
