Cretan Nutrition and the Mediterranean Diet


Herbs - Vegetables - Fruits of Crete

EIGHT BASIC POINTS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET
1. High ratio of monounsaturates (olive oil) over saturated lipids (butter, lard).
2. Moderate consumption of alcohol (1-2 glasses of red wine / day).
3. Large consumption of greens / vegetables.
4. Large consumption of cereals (including whole grain bread).
5. Large consumption of fruits.
6. Large consumption of herbs.
7. Low consumption of meat and related products.
8. Low consumption of milk and dairy products.


Individuals who abide by the above eight points are considered to be proportionally closer to the Mediterranean diet and a healthier living.

THE ANTIOXIDANT QUALITIES OF HERBS
- OLIVE OILS WITH HERBS
-
Vegetable oils scented with herbs and spices were extensively used in antiquity, but we have no knowledge of their application in the kitchen. We do know, however, that owing to their inherent qualities, vegetable oils were used for body care. Selected herbs were added to vegetable oils to lend them valuable curative, styptic and antioxidant qualities.

During the reign of Byzantine emperor Constantine "the purple-born", lefist Cassianos Vassos is credited with a number of recipes for scented olive oil. Some of these recipes provide instructions for improving medium and low quality olive oils with the addition of aromatic herbs. For example, rancid olive oil improves with the addition of dill and foul-smelling olive oil with the addition of coriander or raisins. A popular practice in the villages of the province of Pediada, Crete, was to add 2-3 oregano sprigs in the large earthenware jars used as olive oil containers.

There has been a lot of research in the plant kingdom for substances with antioxidant qualities, particularly in herbs and aromatic plants, the main sources of antioxidants. Independent investigation results concur on the significant antioxidant qualities of the rosemary and oregano.

In 1952 Chipault noted that consumption of salted meat should be combined with infusions of rosemary, sage and thyme. In addition, he claims that oregano in mayonnaise offers excellent antioxidant qualities. Modern research is under way by the Aristotelian University with regard to the stability of olive oils mixed with rosemary, oregano, garlic and thyme.

 Do You Speak Greek?
Did You Say Dance?

Come on my boy! And so begins perhaps some of the most moving music ever written. Zorba, a man for all seasons, for all eternity, leads his English-born disciple, whose knowledge lay mostly in his "damn books". Slowly and serenely, the dancers share a mood that is rarely experienced, as the bouzouki weaves a majestic tapestry. The pace quickens, the πεννιές. become διπλοπεννιές and soon there is a frenzy of excitement that I have felt in few works of music. Prokofiev's stirring "Battle On Ice", written for Eisenstein's epic Alexander Nevsky, comes to mind, as does Beethoven's Wellington's Victory. But why speak of battle? Because, dear readers, that's what it's all about. The χασάπικο in days of old was a war dance. It was adopted from an ancient shepherd dance of the Macedonian-Thracian region, and it became a training exercise for the soldiers in the army of Alexander the Great. The soldiers were prepared for battle. Silently and stealthily they moved as they approached the enemy: signals were transmitted by touch. Contact was made with the foe, commands were shouted -the dance gets faster. Presto, prestissimo, the speed becomes almost unbearable, and only the hardiest can endure. And finally, victory.

The ancient name for the dance appears to have been lost; συρτός is the only dance found in the Greek inscriptions. The term χασάπικο means, of course, "of a butcher", from the Turkish kasap, a word of Arabic origin. It is called by this name because the butcher's guild of Constantinople adopted it in the Byzantine period. In those days it was known as the makellarion dance for μακελλάρης was then the word for "butcher", from the Latin macellarius (or "meat seller"), itself from the Greek μάκελλον (or "enclosure"), a word found in the Greek inscriptions some years after the birth of Christ. (Incidentally, the macellarius shop in the Roman Empire was called a taberna, which meant "something covered" in general; the word τείνω, which as early as Homer meant "to spread" as of a covering, is also related to it, as is the Latin tabula, meaning "plank", where the English "table" comes from. The Greek word ταβέρνα, meaning "inn", comes from the Latin taberna, as does the English "tavern". During the Turkish occupation, the Janissaries (Christian Greeks who were taken from their parents and trained to fight in the Turkish army), or γενίτσαροι, from the Turkish yeni-ceri. meaning "new (or young) army", danced the χασάπικο, as did the αρναούτιδες or "Albanians", from the Turkish arnaut, and the dance called αρναούτικο. Over the centuries, the dance separated into two parts - a slow and a fast (at about twice the speed); the acceleration and the merging disappeared, as did the frenetic coda. The latter form is found throughout southern Europe and the Near East. In Arabic it is called Debka in Armenian, Soorch Bar; in Ukranian, Arkhon; in Rumanian and in Hebrew, llora: in Bulgarian. Kasapsko Oro and in Yugoslavia, Kasapsko Kolo.

The fast version before the war, especially in the United States, was called simply χασάπικο. The only χασάπικο that Lambelet chose to include in his famous anthology, published in Athens in J934, was marked "allegro" in 2/4 time. It would be ludicrous to consider this the slower version. The refugees who survived the 1922 slaughter by the Turks brought with them a slightly faster and liltier version than the slow; this was called πολιτικό χασάπικο, i.e., "of the city", meaning of course, Constantinople. (By the way, did you know "Istanbul" comes from the phrase εις την πόλιν, meaning "in (to) the city"?) But songs were also being written in the slow version during the years before the war, by Dragatsis, Tountas, Vamvakaris, Papaioannou - even Hiotis and Tsitsanis wrote them. (Arhontissa was first recorded in 1939). They were called both (βαρύ) χασάπικα (according to older musicians) as well as ρεμπέτικα, the more generic title, from ρεμπέτης, meaning "vagabond", probably related to the Slavic rebenok, meaning παλικάρι ("brave young man").

However, knowledgeable musicians notwithstanding, I have yet to find one record pressed before the war that includes the entry (βαρύ) χασάπικο to describe the slower version of the dance, although recordings marked ρεμπέτικα are legion. Perhaps some of you readers have been more successful. The music was regarded as being solely for the lower classes - the downtrodden and the disenchanted, the drifter, the bum, even the fugitive from the law - not unlike jazz in its early days. Some old-timers tell me the dance was done face to face with knives brandished; others remember seeing the dancers arm in arm (as it is done now), sometimes wearing hats with raised brims; a few tell me the participants were pelted with eggs as they were acting in a vulgar fashion. You or your father might have a better recollection, as documentation is virtually nonexistent.

The dance did not become popular in the States until after the war, probably the late forties. It was introduced in its present from, but with many variations. The slow version was depicted, at least on this shore, as being a particular favorite of the sailors of Piraeus, and thus it began to be called ναυτικό (sometimes ναύτικο), "the sailor's dance", from ναύτης, meaning "sailor", a word used in the Iliad, from ναυς. a "ship", where we get the English "nautical" as well as "nausea", as the latter meant "seasickness". The word quickly lost its currency in Greece (in fact, some swear they never heard it) as the artistry of Tsitsanis, Mitsakis, and later the triumvirate Hatzidakis, Theodorakis and Xarchakos, began composing fantastic music with lovely words. The dance became sanctified.

It is now called simply χασάπικο, and it often does accelerate to a crescendo, not unlike its worthy ancestors. A variation has been dubbed συρτάκι, which, somewhat paradoxically, means "little syrtos". The faster version became known as χασαποσέρβικο, that is "Serbian" χασάπικο, and indeed some authorities (e.g. Petropoulos) do contend that the faster version is probably of Slavic origin. In the United States, however, many Greek-Americans still retain the older names, much to the chagrin of native-born Greeks. But whatever it is called, the flowering of this musical expression has been acclaimed around the world, and the Greeks now have a laic music to be truly proud of and to call their very own, like jazz in America.

  Featured Destination: Islands of the Saronic & Argolic Gulf - Salamis (part 1 of 5)


The islands of the Saronic and Argolic gulf are located between the northeast shores of the Peloponnese and the west coast of Attica, being referred to as the islands of the Argosaronic gulf for brevity. They are Salamis, Aegina, Hydra, Poros, and Spetses, all of which attract a considerable number of visitors, especially at weekends and during the summer months. There are several boats a day from Piraeus as well as from the Argolid, most convenient for those visitors wishing to spend a few hours of peace and quiet in their soothing environment.

The main features of all these islands are their pretty villages, delightful beaches, dazzling white houses retaining elements of vernacular architecture and narrow cobbled streets. Their past is rich in mythological and historical tradition, intimately associated with the sea. Yet each has a personally distinctly its own.

Salamis - at the entrance to the gulf of Elefsis - is renowned for the epoch-making naval battle (480 BC), between the Greeks and Persians. Aegina, with its ancient nautical tradition, first capital of the newly-established Greek state, has idyllic beaches and many monuments. Poros, in antiquity the island of Poseidon, is famed for its verdant vegetation. Spetses combines its special place in Modern Greek history, on account of its illustrious maritime tradition and past glory, with its old world tranquility and golden sands. Hydra, equally famous for its prowess in seafaring, with its impressive mansions attesting its former prosperity, also has a unique terrain.


GEOGRAPHY
Situated in the gulf of Eleusis (Elefsis), 95 sq. km. in area, length of coastline 104 km. population 28,574. Capital Salamina (Koulouri). There are connections between the island and Piraeus but most of the car and passenger ferries ply the route from Perama to Paloukia (the island's harbour), from 05.00 hours until midnight every day. There are smaller harbours in the south and ast of the island, Selinia, Kaki Vigla and Peristeria. Salamis is a rather flat island with a few mountainous eminences (highest peak Mavrovouni, 365 m. a.s.l.) and the population is mainly engaged in agriculture and seafaring. Since it is so near Athens, Salamis is popular with visitors, especially at the weekends, who mainly congregate on the south side of the island.

HISTORY According to mythological tradition the island was named after the nymph Salamis. From the ancient sources it is known to have participated in the Trojan War and, in historical times, was a bone of contention between the Athenians and Megarites. the most famous event in its historic past was the naval battle fought in its waters in 480 BC, between the Greeks and the Persians Wars and Greece's independence.

SIGHTS-MONUMENTS In the small Archaeological Museum at Salamina, the main town, finds associated with the island's past, going back to Mycenaean times, can be seen. From Salamina one can visit various other parts of the island, such as the Phaneromeni Monastery, about 6 km. away on the northwest coast, which attracts many pilgrims. The tiny church preserved within the monastery is actually the original building, founded in the 11th century. The present katholikon, built in the 18th century, houses several valuable icons. The Monastery of St. Nicholas, also of 18th century date, on the west coast near Moulki and the Byzantine chapel of St. John Kalyvitis. This village is also known as Aianteio, since it is the location of the city of Aiantas, hero of the Trojan War. On the northeast side, at Ambelakia, there are some traces of the Classical acropolis, for the island's capital was evidently in this area in those days. Most visitors converge on Moulki in the west, Ambelakia in the east and Selinia, the leading summer resort. There are refueling facilities for boats in the harbour, as well as some hotels for the accommodation of visitors.
