The Cretan diet is renown all over the world nowadays, as it is considered one of the healthiest diets. The Greek Academy of Gastronomy that was created in Crete has as a goal to preserve and spread the Cretan diet, through the programme "CONCRED". According to this programme, restaurants are given certifications for offering authentic Cretan cuisine dishes. Several restaurants and taverns that offer traditional dishes but also other foods that comply to the Cretan dietary practices, have already been certified.
