The cuisine of Crete, being a crossroad island, has been influenced, at different times, by both western and eastern Mediterranean cultures.
What many don’t know is that the famous for its health benefits Mediterranean Diet has its origin in the Cretan cuisine. The European voyagers and explorers in the 1950s who started to show an interest in the nutritional habits of other cultures have noticed the surprising longevity of the Cretans despite their poverty and the simplicity of their diet. This inspired them to further investigate the eating habits of all neighboring Mediterranean cultures until they formed a clear suggestion of what we today know as the Mediterranean Diet, one of the most healthy styles of eating worldwide.
