Antikristo | Food In Crete

On Crete there is a very special cooking method used for lamb or goat meat. This cooking method is called antikristo  which literally means “across the fire”.

In the fields this cooking method is made across large fires with huge grids where the meat ist hanged after salting (only salt is needed) and cooked with the indirect heat of the flames.

The big advantage of this cooking method ist that the meat does not need constant attention and shepherds could continue with their works.

In  our case with tried to use a Spanish tool intended for roasting bread. We tool was big enough for one shoulder of lamb! The result was excellent and we could smell and taste Crete even thousands of kilometers away from our beloved island.
