Once upon a time in 1500 B.C., where the sky and the sea meet in the Aegean Archipelago... in Greece, the
volcano on the island of Thera erupted...
...lava, pumice and ash covered everything the ash traveled with the wind and an enormous tidal wave advanced by the sea...
The horror reached the
island of Crete and destroyed the palace of King Minoa, the son of Zeus (king of the gods of Olympus) and Europa.
Centuries later under the ruins, somehow miraculously, the delicate frescoes,
marvelous paintings, and magnificent sculptures remained alive to celebrate the beauty of life.
Both in Thera and in Crete, storage bays were found filled with looms, medicine chests, grain, vases
...and delightful pottery embellished with swallows, dolphins, wild goats and caper and saffron plants...
...memories, aromatic essences, and flavors from Crete in a journey of
sensations, give us with open hand Taverna Cretekou - The Taven of the Cretan.
