 On Saturday June 22, 2013 and on Thursday July 4, 2013*, Blue Palace Resort and Spa will present ancient cooking practices and interpretations of the Minoan foods & flavors in a unique outdoor set up.
 A team consisting of scholars, chefs, ecologists and craftsmen have come together to prepare an outdoor cooking demonstration that replicates as closely as possible the way ancient Cretans prepared and enjoyed a feast gathering, allowing participants to engage all senses and savor the flavors of slow cooking dishes. Using a collection of clay replicas of ancient Minoan cook pots and utensils, the cooking takes place in an open fire in a stone built structure similar to Minoan hearths discovered in excavations across the island of Crete.
