This year, Crete’s Culinary Sanctuaries (CCS) is celebrating 20 years of operation in Crete, Greece. CCS is an educational program that organizes award-winning seminar series, focusing on culture, nature, sustainable organic agriculture, and traditional cuisine. Since its founding, the program has hosted more than 3,000 students, teachers, researchers, and journalists. These seminars include visits to historic sites, discussions with local producers, and cooking lessons.
Nikki Rose is the Founder and Director of CCS, a Greek-American professional chef, and an author. Much like CCS, her cookbook highlights Cretan cuisine, history, and lifestyle. Food Tank had the opportunity to discuss Chef Rose’s career and CCS.
