Cooking Lessons

The Cretan and Mediterranean diets are extraordinary. They combine great health benefits with extraordinary flavors and aromas.

Every visitor to Crete is enchanted by Cretan cuisine and wants to uncover its secrets. They want to discover ancient recipes which have been passed down through the generations.

At Domus Renier we offer you the opportunity to explore the world of Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine. We open the doors of our hotel kitchen from October to March, allowing you to get to know our talented chef Vassilis Sikalias through professional chef lessons.

Walk the winding old town streets of Chania with Vassilis and visit the local street markets. Wander between the market stalls and discover how to spot the best locally sourced ingredients. Return back to the hotel, and let Vassilis give you cooking lessons to show you how to prepare and cook your favourite dishes and treats. And, finally and most importantly, sample your creations!

Once you’ve learned the magic and uncovered the secrets, you can recreate Greek and Cretan dishes back at home. Take a slice of Cretan magic back with you, and keep the memories of Domus Renier Boutique Hotel alive until the next year.
