Cretan DacosOne of the authentic cultural elements of a region is gastronomy. The distinctiveness of the “kitchen taste” (gustation) is many times associated with the quality characteristics of its society, while “revealing” information concerning its cultural and economical history.
At the same time, gustation seems to be a way of communicating. A way for someone to “talk” to the heart of someone else.
Greek gastronomy has recorded a history of around 4,000 years, with especial characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek land. In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history (330 B.C.).
In Greek nutritional tradition the gustative result blends harmonically with the high nutritional value. Dozens of scientific studies have shown the positive effect of a balanced Greek diet on a person’s health, beauty and longevity. In addition, the nutritional culture of the Greeks has traditionally added an extraverted social dimension to the table, combining gustative satisfaction with recreation and communication, and thus maintaining even today some overtones from ancient feasts.

Mountain walks with Markos and cooking courses with George
Mountain walking holiday at Asteroussia Mountain in Crete:
Truly spectacular scenery on this walking holiday, suitable for
the whole family, so kids and adults alike can enjoy the thrill of discovering the island together.
 
Here you walk the range of Asteroussia Mountains so close the sea with its own large system of old paths and trails.
The ideal way to explore the heart of Crete is by walking on coastal paths, ascending the highest peaks and crossing spectacular gorges and Marko stakes you off the beaten paths, into Crete's rich flora and fauna, and certainly to mountainous villages to meet the "authentic" Cretans and their traditions. There are only few places worldwide where you can find the combination of high mountains close to the sea, mild climate with long dry seasons and a large network of ancient paths and shepherds trails. Add to this the friendliness of the locals and you have a perfect recipe for a wonderful walking holiday.
