About the Author

Ivy Liacopoulou was born in Limassol, Cyprus. She lives in Athens, Greece with her husband and three children. She worked in the Airline industry for many years and had a bookstore for several years. After early retirement she decided to record the traditional recipes of her country, as a heritage to her children. The author is an experienced cook, being married for 30 years and cooking since she can remember herself as a child. She provides not only a brief history of the recipe, after a lot of research, but also clear instructions, lots of useful tips, some step by step photos to show how to prepare more complicated recipes and with lots of other mouthwatering pictures for each recipe. Ivy belongs to a new generation of home cooks who loves to experiment and create new recipes of her own. Her creativeness and passion for cooking are depicted in her blog, Kopiaste.. to Greek Hospitality. Ivy is inviting you in her kitchen (that is what kopiaste is all about), to share all her small secrets, behind hundreds of home-style recipes that have been part of her family's heritage for many years, where you will taste and scent the delectable, mouthwatering aromas of cinnamon, mint and blossom water, the predominant flavours of Cypriot cuisine.

For anyone wanting to learn about Cypriot cuisine, this is your bible! When I read on Ivy's website, Kopiaste.org, that she had released her cookbook, I didn't expect 230 recipes in the form of two fabulous volumes. Filled with clear explanations and background history to the mouthwatering recipes, each volume is beautifully illustrated. I love how she includes different versions of classic recipes: such as her Mum's beetroot salad, a beetroot salad using the leaves plus her own take on the classic. Suddenly my tourist recipe book I bought many years ago in Cyprus has been pushed aside on the cookbook shelf; the master of Cypriot cuisine has arrived!

I, too, have been a fan of Ivy's blog for several years, but, living in Cyprus, never felt a need to by a Cypriot cookbook (I have a mother-in-law, after all!). Then I decided to buy it, as I wanted to see how Ivy presented some of her dishes, and I'm very glad that I did. The book is informal and accessible, well illustrated -- often with step-by-step photos to show you how your creation should look -- and complete with anecdotes about Ivy's childhood and mother (who taught her cooking) and ideas for substitute ingredients should those called-for not be available. There are very few Cypriot (as distinct from Greek) cookbooks written in English, and this is one that I would certainly recommend.

Ivy did a lovely job of creating this self published cookbook and has kindly offered to help me out with mine. Lots of photos and if you want to know about traditional Greek cuisine, then you will want this book. Meat eaters and vegetarians and vegans won't be lacking for inspiration in the kitchen. Lots of helpful tips and advice from one of my favorite home cooks. Thanks Ivy for your efforts.

Bought this for my wife who loves to cook (lucky me) and she really likes it. If you like Greek food (or any food) this is a nice cookbook.

Well Ivy the author was born in Limassol and my husband was born in Limnatti and my son in law is smitten by Cypriot pita bread so I'm just looking for the optimum recipe. If it wasn't for the family connections to Cyprus I would say that the book was overpriced and not very professionally produced however the cover looks great on the bookshelf and Mint Cinnamon & rose water are sure the flavours and I would buy it again as a gift

I recently purchased and downloaded both volumes of Ivy's KOPIASTE. It is an amazing cookbook, with great recipes and excellent instructions. Each recipe that I have tried to make has motivated me to make yet another and another. Ivy delivered my purchase promptly and courteously, with a nice personal note encouraging me to contact her if I had any questions or concerns.

I have made the pastitsio, the keftedes, the tyropita and many other wonderful recipes. Cookies are next on my list. My husband and friends have raed about these recipes and have devoured everything I have made from Ivy's books. I have pastitsio cooking right now and the house is filled with the wonderful aromas of Ivy's recipe.

I recommend KOPIASTE to everyone.
