Crete is the largest among the Greek islands, the most populous and the fifth largest island in the Meditteranean.
Having been the center of the first European civilization – the Minoan civilization (around Protected content – and the first one to erect a palace (at Knossos), it has evolved cultural traits that are distinctively different from its neighbours, especially in its cuisine.
If you’ve been to the Greek islands but missed spending time in Crete or you’re like most of us in F&BG just culinarily curious and adventurous, here’s an opportunity to discover that difference.
F&BG 17: DisCrete Charms – The Food of Crete would let you save up on travel while savoring that island’s wonderful tasting mezes, entrees and a dessert – a total of 16 dishes – served tavern ((or meyhane)-style in a visual or architectural feast of a setting, with UNLIMITED LOCAL DRINKS (raki/beer/wine/soft drinks) and LIVE MUSIC.
Normally priced at 80TL, this culinary experience is ours at a heftily discounted 60TL (plus 5TL suggested gratuity for service and musicians).
And because this event falls on a Saturday, we are moving from the 2nd Floor dining room to an After Party on the first floor. That’s where the latest Beyoglu hot spot Mirror is located and where we’d be shaking all the food and drinks we’ve injested to a feverishly live DJ music with. In other words, when you sign up for this event, think signing up for a wildly complete Saturday night out.
Please note that F&BG 17 venue GIRITLI IDILIKA has requested the number of attendees be submitted on 22nd JANUARY or a week before the event. So the Guest List will be closed at 6pm that day.
ONLY F&BG MEMBERS CAN ATTEND AND ONLY THOSE WHO ARE SURE TO ATTEND SHOULD SIGN UP. Thank you… Oh, as in all F&BG events, come with a healthy appetite J!
