I am Mike (Michalis) and with my team we'll do our best to show you the secrets of Crete's tastiness! We are not professional cooks neither are we professionally involved with this area. But we do love good food, we cherish Cretan culture and we will try to showcase both through the pages of this blog and the videos of our channel. Enjoy!
