“The story of a dish”
We can discover the truth of sustainability through the story of a dish. And stories, you know, are created by people.
Our concern, among others, is the protection and improvement of rural areas and social prosperity. But how can a dish help with that? Before we got to offer you our pure, traditional Cretan dishes since 2014 at Peskesi restaurant, the farm already existed. An area that started from 5 acres and has reached 30, which creates a protective shield of the local rural zone. From there comes most of the raw material for our dishes, and what we can not produce we procure from small local producers with whom we worked all these years.
We look beyond strengthening the resilience of people and communities; we care about promoting the rational management of natural and human systems. Which emerges through our collaborations at all levels, from the farm to the restaurant, but also through the continuous training of our people. That’s how we got from the story of a dish to talking about the people who inspire, work for, create and ultimately offer this dish. All these people want to live as best as we can with respect to what we have been given generously and give the next generations the right and opportunity to live this “miracle”. This will be our peskesi.
