Join Maddie Salters on an agricultural adventure on the island of Crete.
With winter tightening its chilly grip over the UK, I escaped to sunny Crete for an Agro-Adventure.
Agricultural blogging and eco-tourism weren’t my forte, which the Cretan Tourism Board and Mediaco seemed to have been counting on, when they invited me on behalf of the tikichris blog. I had never heard of an “agricultural adventure” (though I was plenty versed in their ultimate end: eating), and I departed London Heathrow with a curious mind, and a ready stomach.
What awaited me in Crete was the food journey of a lifetime. From field and farm to table, I would learn how to harvest olives and press them into oil, herd and milk the goats that would allow me to make fresh cheeses, and roll my own pasta. The trip gave me an appreciation for each sumptuous, sun-ripened bite I took along the way … and there were many! I’m dying to share some of the highlights with tikichris readers, in my series Crete Eats: A Grecian Agro-Adventure.
