I am the co-founder of Tasting Crete. A unique spot that creates gastronomic experiences in Heraklion City Center, based on the food culture of Crete. After spending many years abroad and completing my Ph.D. in Anthropology, I decided to return to my hometown and focus on food tourism. The last 6 years I have invested all my time and energy in highlighting the magnificent food and the amazing flavors of Crete through the histories of its people. Together with my business partner, we have created Tasting Crete, where people can explore, learn, and interact through gastronomic experiences.

Really excellent experience! It was a lovely chilled out way to learn more about something I used in my cooking almost every day but actually had no idea about! Georgios is great and very knowledgeable. Clearly very passionate about the topic, and that comes through in the experience. My wife and I had a great time, and we were pleasantly surprised with what we learnt.
