My husband and I were fortunate to be able to visit our daughter and her family when they lived in Crete. One of the highlights of our travels has always been enjoying the local cuisine and we found the Greek food was fabulous! One of the reasons that it is so good, of course, is the quality of the ingredients. Fruits and vegetables are locally raised on small farms. The pork, lamb, and chicken are free range animals frequently pastured in the olive groves to keep the grass and weeds down.
