Cretan Culinary Creations



Here they are some photos from the Olive Oil festival in Crete, Chania. The festival was closed with a culinary competition full of local Cretan recipes. All recipes had something in common: The Olive Oil. The festival was followed by a symposium.

Symposium means eating together. It means sharing. Sharing food, ideas, news and feelings. Α unique  ritual  for a typical Greek family. The way we eat and what we eat are all part of the Greek culture.

Enjoy some typical Cretan food creation based on olive oil.
