The incorporation of olive oil in the dietary habits of the Cretans dates back to ancient times. The writings in Linear A and B tablets ascertain that Minoans used it in their nutrition dating at least as far back as 1800 BC.

The kitchen of Maria Beach preserves this secret of good health and longevity. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh fish and meat, legumes, varieties of cheese, olive oil and bread are either grown, produced or made by themselves or bought from local farmers. They scent the taste with marvelous herbs like oregano, make desserts with natural sweetening materials and honey.
