If you enjoy eating at your local Greek restaurant back home, you’re in for a real treat on your trip to the Hellenic islands. With extra virgin olive oil and a vast variety of fresh and healthy ingredients, traditional Greek food does not only feed your body, it also feeds your soul. Dip into the traditional shared mezes to get the full Greek food tasting experience and finish it off with a raki and a “yamas!” (cheers!)
Upon request, our private chefs take your senses on an authentic culinary journey through the tastes and textures of the local cuisine. By putting their personal twists on the recipes, they provide some extra pep to your palate with elite and rich flavours. If you prefer dining out, My Suitcase Blue© will gladly take on the role of your luxury concierge service, making reservations at a traditional taverna where the locals go or at the most top-notch restaurants. Furthermore, our team of professional caterers specialises in high-end gastronomy events, from weddings and celebrations to dinner parties.
If you would like to take home a piece of Greek cuisine, joining a cooking class will reveal some of the secret techniques used to cook our flavourful dishes. Alternatively, spend a day with a family on their farm and become acquainted with the authentic village life…that’s what we call the optimum Cretan experience!
According to ancient Greek mythology, the invention of wine can be traced back to the Olympian demi-god Dionysus. With this in mind, on your journey to Greece, you can visit some of the oldest wine producing regions in the world.
Whether you would like to take a trip to one of our local Cretan vineyards or make use of our private air transfers to nearby islands such as Santorini or the Northern Greek mainland, you are guaranteed an exquisite introduction into Greek wine culture. Should a private wine tasting be more to your liking, we can organise such at a location or vineyard of your choice, with a wide network of passionate winegrowers throwing light on the balance and body of every individual grape. In addition, certified sommeliers are available for any special occasions, from privatised events to even providing their services on your exclusive yacht. It’s wine o’clock somewhere so why not make it right here, right now!
