I am an unapologetic gourmand. Sometimes food is the inspirational part of the craft of my adventures.
That is why I traveled to Crete's Lassithi Plateau to search for the rare Cretan black truffle - and learned how to cook them with brilliant local chefs. Now you can do the same.
I have designed this unforgettable trip to submerge you into an authentic way of life in one of the island's most beautiful regions while gaining a deeper understanding of the relationship between recipes, people, and traditions.
This is the land of emotions and the art of planning two great loves: travel and food.
•Venture to the heart of truffle country, Lassithi Plateau
•Make a stop at one of the traditional villages for a delicious Cretan breakfast
•Visit the historic village of Krasi and take photos by the iconic Plateau's Windmills
•Meet the truffle hunter at the 1882 Cretan Mansion and set off on a truffle hunt adventure (1. 5-2h)
•After the hunt, let me take you to an authentic local restaurant - prepare yourself for a cooking demonstration paired with local produce, aromatic wine, food, and - of course - fresh truffles
•Amble in the ancient Minoan footsteps to the Cave of Zeus (Diktaion Andron)
•Spark your travel curiosity to visit family pottery and the Monastery of Panagia Kera Kardiotissa
