It should come as no surprise that Greeks love their food! From the pretty basics, like olive oil, Greek salad, feta and Greek yogurt, to the more complex ones like souvlaki and moussaka, Greeks have managed to get the world healthier, more tasty and fuller, just by food!

Do you know that the average Greek family consumes about 100 liters of olive oil per year? Luckily in Greece and especially in Crete olive oil is as plentiful as water. In fact, every authentic Greek recipe involves the use of lots of the ‘golden green.’
Crete is in the Mediterranean climate zone and the city of Rethymno has a warm, temperate weather system buffeted by the Mediterranean Sea. Winters are calm, and although there is some rain, snow is rare is limited to the mountains. Summers are warm, usually very hot and very dry.
