Deliciously Daios Cove

For most of us grown ups, discovering new tastes and exotic flavors is one of the most exciting and memorable aspects of going on vacation. At Scott Dunn, we believe children shouldn’t miss out on these experiences either.

So this summer as part of the launch of our Scott Dunn Explorers children’s clubs, we’ve teamed up with children’s food expert Fiona Faulkner to create a gastronomical voyage of discovery for our hungry young guests.

Over June half term, Fiona will joining us at Scott Dunn Explorers at Daios Cove in Crete and doing baking workshops with our Adventurers (3-4 years), Voyagers (5-7 years) and Pioneers (8-13 years) and a family session with Mums and Dads, exclusive to our guests. Even our youngest group, the Globetrotters (up to 2 years) will be able to try their hand at some messy foodie games too.

To whet your appetite here’s a taster of what will be on the globe-trotting menu at Scott Dunn Explorers – but sadly it’s kids size portions only!

Slumdog Soup – a dahl based soup with a subtle taste of India

Silician Meatballs – a traditional recipe with a twist, using tuna fish

Popeye’s Pesto Pasta with Olive Oil – Fiona’s ‘hero recipe’ with secret spinach

Mediterranean Muffins – bite size pinic treats with sundried tomatoes, olives and green beans

The Cowboy Chowdown – a Canadian inspired shepherd’s pie packed full of their 5 a day.

Arriba! Ice Cream – a nod to the flavors of Mexico with avocado and lime, simply delicious!

But it’s not just the children who will be eating well at Daios Cove, the parents will too with three superb restaurants to choose from.

To experience a true taste of Crete, the Greek Taverna at the water’s edge, serves local specialities and freshly caught fish and seafood, Ocean offers a chic modern take on Italian fine dining with spectacular views across the cove (pictured) and the main restaurant, Pangea, is an international food bazaar, offering a nightly buffet of dishes and delicacies from all over the world.

Nearby, the traditional Cretan fishing village of Plaka, opposite the island of Spinalonga made famous by Victoria Hislop’s ‘The Island’, with its authentic tavernas showcasing the famous Greek hospitality, and just five minutes away the bustling bars and restaurants around the marina of Agios Nikolaos.
