Visit a Cretan Organic Garden and Enjoy a Delicious multi-dish meal My name is Yiannis (formally Ioannis), I was born in the second largest Greek city, Thessaloniki, but living in Crete all my life. I began my career in tourism 35 years ago, immediately after graduating from the Higher Education School of professional Tour Guides. For many years, I revealed to my guests among history and archaeology, the secrets of Cretan Diet, which ensures good health and long life for centuries long. In the end, I started producing my own ingredients and created my organic farm named “Bostani”. I have learned that the best compost is made of olive leaf and seaweed and that manure of my rabbits and goats can give the best veggies. Today, ten years later, I am happy to welcome and guide you through my Bostani Bio Farm. At the same time, you can sit down for a multi-dish meal in which everything from the boiled eggs and chicken to the plump tomatoes, honey and wine is produced just meters away. You can enjoy this tasty and nutritious meal prepared by me and my family.
What to expect
Amazing evening with Yiannis and his son. Very informative and very genuine. Can't praise them enough.
We booked a walking food tour with Yiannis for 4 people. Luckily we were the only 4 on the tour, so it was more of a private tour. For the first half hour or so, I think he was feeling us out and mentally adjusting the agenda based on our age/demographics, which was very much appreciated.
All in all, he was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. I thought this tour would be purely about the food, but it also included a lot of history. I think this really gave us a well rounded experience and helped us to understand the origin of each dish.
By the end we felt we got a little bit of everything, including just the right amount of delicious Cretan cuisine to send us home satiated, but not stuffed.
If I had one very minor criticism, it would be for him to just go ahead and explain the origin of everything we’re eating, instead of waiting for us to ask the questions.
Nevertheless, he had all the answers and we had an amazing time!
Excellente soirée avec Yiannis et Brigitte. Le repas cuisiné par Brigitte avec les ingrédients produits par Yiannis était délicieux, la conversation animée. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
