The taste of “Paximadi”

Traditional rusk and bread making in Crete

The ideal experience in Crete that connects the ritual of bread making with the modern lifestyle of a family, in the context of historical continuity from the Stone Age until nowadays. Who would be better to host us, than a local “Mama” who loves what she does and stays in search of ways to evolve and an archaeologist with a passion for nature and agroecology?

In this gastronomical workshop you will have the chance to learn about cereals, get acquainted with sourdough, knead your own bread and rusk, to bake your dough and taste the local cuisine, while the bread is rising with the instructive company of a local cook and an archaeologist.
