Cretan Diet

I thought this may be of interest to people on the LivinginCrete Forum. For clarity, I 'cut and pasted' the thread from the 'explorecrete' forum. I could not see any copyright sign.

FROMAGE FRAIS

Hi,

I need some help yet again........Could someone tell me if the supermarkets sell Fromage Frais (ideally Low Fat or Fat Free) ?

If yes, what is the Greek spelling..........it will help me identify it.

Many thanks.

OAT BRAN

Hi
Could anyone tell me if one can buy 'Oat Bran' in Crete? If so, where?
Also, the Greek name for it. It has to be pure milled Oat Bran not a substitute.
Many thanks

2010 update

Synagogue

Quite right Filippos, but I used the headline as direction to the BBC article, which in fact the BBC used: 'Britons accused of setting fire to a synagogue in Crete.' Regardless, I feel appalled and hope to goodness they are not ex-pat Britons ! Greece is appalled at the incidences within Greece. The...
