Since ancient times, people on the island have been consuming local products. The Mediterranean diet, which is based on herbs, legumes, meat, fish, honey, dairy products, and wine, is celebrated in Crete. The Cretan traditional cuisine is simple and inventive and is based on the endless variety of Cretan endemic products. What is never missing from the Cretan cuisine is olive oil, wheat or barley dusks, and of course raki, which is a local traditional alcoholic drink.
