    "I loved my week at Cressa Ghitonia with Cretan Thyme in Greece! The location was perfect, peaceful, relaxing and rejuvenating. The hotel was everything I could have imagined, great food, relaxed environment, fabulous staff, incredible spa with the best masseuse, and of course the cooking days were the highlight of the week!Anna the chef instructor, is the best! She's absolutely hospitable and a pleasure to spend the day with, and most of all the food was delicious, and the best Dolmas I've had in Greece! Her recipes were also excellently chosen, such that I could easily replicate almost all the ingredients at home as well, and substitute easily for ingredients that are strictly local to Greece. Thank you so much for a fabulous time!"

    "An introduction to Crete through learning how to cook some of their healthy and delicious dishes. It has been an experience that I will definitely remember for a long time to come. To add flavor to the holiday meeting and making friends with warm and friendly locals. The chef instructor Anna was great in teaching me through doing things and I felt as if I'm cooking with my sister and not a real class. Katerina was amazing in making everything flow smoothly and for treating me as a friend, I did not feel that she was doing this for work, in fact I felt that we were just hanging out together. I also met some warm and friendly locals through Anna and Katerina, which was one of the highlights of my trip, such warm, hospitable, and friendly people. This is a vacation that I most definitely recommend!"
