Minoan Cooking Experience
Created in 2012 by a small group of archaeologists, potters, and cooks living in the Lassithi
prefecture of Crete, Minoan Tastes offers experiential workshops, cooking classes and
dinner parties that explore the ancient foods and cooking techniques of Europe’s first Bronze
Age civilization from 3650 to 1450 B.C. Taught by Jerolyn Morrison, a scholar in Minoan
cooking vessels, the classes are a mix of archaeology, anthropology, and hands-on cooking,
with the dishes all made in authentic Minoan-style ceramic pots set over a hearth fire.
Like the Minoans, we try to use ingredients that we can find locally and in season-be it wild
as paragusor for aged mushrooms-and we adjust our menu for every single class. You can
be as involved as you like, from baking handmade pita on a hot stone to simply relaxing
through an afternoon of meze and local wines and your class can be as in-depth
as you like on the history and archaeology of the area. Design the perfect event for your trip to Crete.
