Slow food celebration: gastronomy meets luxury vacation


This season, down by the pool with a stunning view of the Venetian Castle on the island of Spinalonga, world leading chefs will present dishes featuring locally-produced products in a slow fashion during a huge culinary festival.

A new awarded chef will take over every weekend for 4 weekends in July and August, satisfying the palettes of the most demanding guests.

This summer Domes of Elounda, a 5-star resort in Elounda Crete, presents the revolutionary Slow Food Celebration. Slow food is an idea that links the pleasure of food with the commitment to community and the environment. With respect to the cultural and nutritional heritage of Crete and Mediterranean cuisine as well as the natural resources of the region, local village chefs as well as famous Greek and Italian chefs will turn the preparation of their dishes into a ritual… closely monitoring the entire process, starting from the growth and cultivation of the raw materials and following them all the way to the dish!

For the third consecutive year, Domes of Elounda invites all food adventurers and overall travel enthusiasts to join the festival and savor! In 2010 during the First Annual Festival De la Gastronomie, 7 awarded chefs such as Marco Garfagnini, Georgios Troumouches, Thodoros Kassavetis, Dimitrios Dimitriadis, prepared and served 50 epicurean dishes for 700 guests with culinary demonstrations spread over a period of 4 weeks.

In 2011 a joint degustation was organized during the Second Annual Festival De la Gastronomie. Infamous Chefs, namely Philippe Geneletti, Tomomi Ohashi, Marco Garfagnini, Emanuele Cappellini, Yves Mattagne and Franck Putelat, discussed their food culture and prepared over 50 regional specialties; showcasing secret recipes and introducing their food philosophies to 700 guests, who took zestful pleasure in the inclusive experience.

About Domes of Elounda
Domes of Elounda reinvents Elounda restoring its lost principal of exclusivity. The essence of the Mediterranean, the culture, the cuisine, the temperament, the architecture, are holistically captured in the form of a luxury resort consisting for the first time of only suites & villas that provide a small number of exclusive guests with all the amenities of a resort, while offering an abundance of living space, privacy and extraordinary service.

Minimally interfering with the natural habitat and harmonically blended with their surroundings, domed structures with breathtaking ocean views emerge from the ground, respecting its natural contours and creating a Mediterranean settlement on a hillside of flower gardens, stone pathways, and olive groves just a stone’s throw away from the Venetian castle on the island of Spinalonga, the setting for Victoria Hislop’s bestselling novel “The Island”.
