Chania is the second biggest city in Crete and has been continuously inhabited since 4000 B.C.! According to the legend, it was one of the three cities that were founded on Crete by King Minos.

Chania has a rich culture and an interesting history. Minoans, Mycenaeans, Dorians, Classical and Hellenistic Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Venetians, Ottomans, Jews, Greek refugees from Asia Minor and Cretans created an amalgam of multiple cultural influences.
The long history of Chania is paramount to understand its rich food culture.

I am an experimental archaeologist-food historian, who recreates Greek historical recipes using




from Rome

I took the 'Eating in ancient Greece' cooking class. It was a cooking lesson, a history lesson and a meal all in one! I enjoyed it very much. I was by myself but Mariana had me group with four other lovely people and we learned so many interesting things and cooked and laughed. A very interesting class by an experimental archaeologist who is an Gourmand award - winning author as well. Food was great.

I’m thoroughly fascinated with Mariana's cooking courses. I took two of them and I enjoyed the entire process, from mixing historically-appropriate ingredients and cooking over an open fire to using replicas of historic equipment and tools. Mariana is extremely generous with her knowledge and responded to every question in such a warm and nuturing way!
