Greetings from Crete!
We had the pleasure of hosting a wonderful group of teachers and students from the
University of Missouri this May. Our 8-day accredited program focused on the
Mediterranean Diet and Lifestyle.
As I've said many times over the years, the Mediterranean Diet (here in Crete) is not a
diet, it is a way of life. The best way to learn that is to live it while visiting Crete. Our
students met over 30 people in the Crete's Culinary Sanctuaries Network -- sustainable
organic farmers, vintners, and olive oil producers; excellent professional chefs and home
cooks; cheese makers, fantastic botanists, musicians, community-based tourism
managers, licensed historians and many other residents that bring the magic of this
island to life.
Here are highlights of the seminar, which we will update when we have time.
Check this link again next week.
All the best,
