We shall prepare one meat dish together, a couple of vegetarian dishes, pies and appetizers. We will enjoy a nice quiet lunch and learn the differences in olive oils by tasting. All the food is organic and made with traditional Cretan receipts. For drinks we have wine and water, and refreshments for children..

Cretan hospitality is world famous. It starts in the dining table. Making food out of organic products is a part of Cretan everyday life. The ingredients for cooking are collected from own garden, or from family and friends. The food is prepared with love and care, which you can taste in the dishes. When the time comes to eat, it involves good company, slowly savoring and enjoying every dish. There is no rush to be anywhere. Dining is a part of the culture, you honour the food by enjoying and having a good time. Same mindset applies through every aspect of the Cretan way of life. Guests are welcomed, guests are gods of the Olympos, guests bring fresh ideas, that is why guests are welcome and appreciated..  .

You don´t have to participate in the cooking if you don´t want to. You can just watch and follow what others are doing. We don’t use any fancy tools, we keep the cooking simple, and we will not be cooking diet food. You don’t have to be a food expert or enthusiast to enjoy and benefit from The Lazy Day. All it takes for you is to sit at the table with us !
