Promoting Local Cuisine

Yiannis Apostolakis is president of the Cretan Gastronomy Network, an informal group that promotes local cuisine. He also works as a chef at a local university and says students complain if he cooks Cretan food.

Jon Miller of Homelands Productions traveled to the Greek island of Crete to find out why its obesity rate has increased over the years. He took these photos along the way.
