(Maia has been on holiday this month and her articles will resume
Meanwhile, to whet your appetite for Maia's return, here are a couple
of west Cretan dishes that are in season now. Expensive - and not to
everyone's taste - but two of our favourite summer dishes ...
Seaweed salad, usually marinated in vinegar and olive oil - crunchy
and full of iodine.
Sea urchin roes, usually served in their own juice with a drop of olive
oil and a lemon slice - soft and slippery, with a stronger seawater
flavour than oysters.
