Snails & Mountain Greens

Take a walk on the wild side of southern Crete

A morning excursion to the mountains of southern Crete is enough to fall in love with the beauty of this place and realize mother nature’s generosity.

During the morning moisty hours, the snails make their appearance. These morning visitors come out of their shells and wander slowly among the hedges, enjoying the wet landscape. This is the best time to collect them. The only thing you need is a bag, patience and a little luck.

Snails are prominent in Cretan cuisine. They exude a strong sense of the place, offering a truly tasty sensation of Cretan “cuisine de terroir”.

But if luck is not on our side there are always the wild greens of the mountain. Radishes, zochoi, wild fennel, wild garlic and many other types of mountain green are waiting to be discovered in order to cook them into a delicious dish for our table.

Whatever the outcome of our morning excursion, one thing is sure. It’s going to be a unique experience, An experience that will elevate our mood and feed our senses.
