Cretan cuisine

World renowned for its cuisine, Crete is an earthly paradise for food lovers, with local dishes that visitors simply worship. Based on the purest of ingredients, and especially extra virgin olive oil, honey, vegetables, wild greens, herbs, pulses and cereals, the Cretan diet ensures a long life and vitality.

Crete’s delicious recipes use those select ingredients, transforming them into tasty dishes such as "sfougata" (an omelette with potatoes, onions, etc.), snails (cooked with fresh broad beans), various types of pies (such as mini pies with wild greens), pork rinds, fava bean purée, and tens of recipes with pork and lamb, as well as sweets such as “tzoulamas” (a sweet rice and chicken pie).

Staff at Anna Maria Village will be only too pleased to provide information about places where you can sample real Cretan and Greek cuisine or places popular with the locals, or that offer food to the accompaniment of live music.
