Cretan Salad
It is a typical Cretan dish you can find everywhere in Crete in some variations from place to place. Ntakos rusk, tomato, Cretan cheese and olive oil to compose a light, refreshing and complete meal.

Syglino
Not to be confused with syglino from Mani in Peloponnese, this is a traditional way of preserving quantities of cooked pork meat. Glina is the fat of the meat produced when cooked. The meat is cut in small pieces and then cooked in low fire. It is stored in glass jars, with its own juices from cooking, for future use.

Goat with Red Sauce
A traditional summer dish with ripe tomatoes. Pieces of goat meat with tomato juice and olive oil, boiled in the casserole. Usually served with potatoes.

Pasta in Broth
The Cretan wedding is mostly connected with a traditional dish called gamopilafo which is meat with rice. Usually though, pasta boiled in broth takes its place on the wedding table. A more delicate dish, served with a lot of cheese on top.

Kalitsounia
Kalitsounia is a delicacy found everywhere in Crete. They are small pies stuffed with cheese or herbs or a mixture of both. Kalitsounia with mizythra cheese are delicious with honey on top.

Yogurt Pie
A special sweet recipe with simple ingredients. You only need sugar, butter, flour, baking powder, eggs, lemon zest and off course yogurt. The mixture is poured in a buttered pan and baked in the oven.

Avronies
A rare but simple dish from Crete for those who like bitter flavours. Avronia is a common vegetable in southern Greece and it looks like asparagus. It must be boiled to reduce bitterness and it is served preferably with vinegar and olive oil as a salad.
