One of the best ways to explore a country is over its local food. Mexico is rich in food culture, and Mexicans have managed to preserve a lot of their traditional dishes. In Europe, we mainly know Tacos and a lot of Tex-Mex dishes like Burritos or Chili con Carne. But the food that I experienced in Mexico went way beyond anything I thought I knew or had expected from Mexican cuisine.
A lonely beach by the pacific coast tempted me to a spontaneous table setting by the sea. Rocks provided a table and the perfect scenery. The ocean provided me with treasures like oyster shells and tiny pebbles.
Collecting shells by the beach is a very meditative and rewarding activity to me, which I already used to love as a child. Oysters especially are inspiring to me: The contrast between the rough outside and the shiny inside gives these them a beautiful a wild elegance, and I find mother-of-pearl is probably one of nature's most luxurious materials.
Since ancient times, Cretan cuisine has been based on several basic elements: olive oil, herbs, fish and seafood, goat or lamb meat, vegetables and fruits grown on the island. Later, Venetian and Ottoman influences were added to them, which created a special cuisine. Crete has many dishes that are found everywhere in the mainland of Greece, but also some specific only to this area.
