All this week, September 23rd through 29th, the businesses and the Municipality of Rethymno are celebrating Rethymno Wine Week, a festival dedicated to Cretan wine and gastronomy. Winding up today and tomorrow, the events will culminate with more special menus and wine tastings for attendees.
Crete offers a diverse culinary trip for travelers, even though the island’s traditional cuisine is the marque attraction for foodies. While the Mediterranean diet is well known and as healthy as advertised, the Cretan take on healthy eating is actually the oldest and most time honored. Ancient as this cooking tradition is though, fine eateries around the island offer unique twists on age old recipes. Here’s a sampling of superb restaurants of a kind.
