This first event included an interactive cooking class, where participants learned first-hand the gourmet culture of the island by making one of the finest and most delicious Cretan desserts "Soutzoukia"
According to Mrs. Theano Metaxa: ""Soutzoukia"
During the second event, Creta Maris Beach Resort guests and employees, guided by Maritsa, the donkey of Creta Maris, participated in the revival of one of the oldest Cretan customs, "Opsigias" (traditional production of raisins), a custom that tends to disappear in recent years.
The participants transported grapes from the vineyard to a central location of the resort, where they performed the immerse "lousidiasma"
These two actions where performed in the context of Creta Maris Beach Resort "We do local" philosophy and events. The fact that they were warmly embraced by the guest, who were thrilled to participate in them, justifies the continuous efforts of the resort to enrich the tourist experience, with authentic cultural events from the long Cretan tradition.
