What you'll do
You will be able to learn and cook a 3 course regular Cretan menu. A full menu will include a starter, a main and a dessert along with a fresh Cretan salad. Booking your experience you will receive the menu with the recipes that you will learn. There is option for vegetarian menu, also gluten or lactose-free if you wish. Be prepared for “hard” work and bring your swimsuit with you, the siesta around the pool will be a great way to relax with a full stomach and after a couple of local wine, raki or ouzo glasses.
Let me know if you are vegeterian or you need to be lacto-free or gluten-free.
For our little friends or in case you don’t fancy alcohol, there will be homemade refreshments for you to enjoy.
14 years ago I left my busy life in Athens and my career in Restaurants’ Marketing to create my own hospitality business in my grandparents’ city, Chania. The island itself and my summer childhood memories in it, were a great base to start. We created our family business and I started to cook all my grandmother’s traditional recipes for our guests. Most of them became great fans of these tastes and started to ask for the recipes and to learn how to cook them. So, since 2013 I have done many private cooking lessons sharing Cretan culinary secrets with lovers of Mediterranean cuisine.

In Metohi Georgila’s garden and in my private kitchen, we will do most of our cooking. We will hand pick some of our ingredients together from our trees or garden, you will check different kind of herbs around the property and learn how to recognize them. We will enjoy our meal by the pool or in our front yard depends on the weather.
