Crete

With a culinary culture as rich and varied as its diverse landscapes, Crete is a land of plenty. Goat risotto, lamb with bitter greens, smoked pork, pan-fried snails, fried cheese pies drizzled in honey, these are just some of Crete's unique delicacies. Every village seems to have a signature cheese. Everything is cooked in superb local olive oil and washed down with lashings of tsikoudia (local grappa).
