I am living in Greece and was given this book as a gift. This book will give you so many insights into Greek regions, foods, wines and life. It is broken down into food groups such as vegetables, cheeses, meats, and wines from each region. The photography is also amazing. After having lived here for two years, I can really understand why certain foods are from each region and how the cuisine has evolved. I have found the book very accurate and the recipes excellent. I have given this book to 3 others since receiving it one month ago.

I am also Greek American and have been through at least 7 Greek cookbooks. Finally I found one with a Pastitsio recipe that tastes just like Yaya's. The photos are beautiful, the recipes (I've used several) are very authentic, and the text is amazing. I love how they break down the regions. I could never find certain recipes that I grew up eating from the Thrace region, but they are in this book!!! I love this book and have given it as a gift as well. In fact, the entire Culinaria series cookbooks are great!

I have loved the CULINARIA series from the very first volume that I was given as a gift. If you are interested in lerning the history and culture of Greece by learning about the food eaten there, this is the book for you.

The book is divided into chapters by geographic regions. Each region is described by the physical features that make it unique, the foods and ingredients that are special to it, and recipes are given for the dishes that define it. There are abundant sidebars about significant topics either historical, political or cultural in the region that have shaped the food or people.

Then there is the photography. Beautiful photographs of the landscape, detailed photographic charts of ingredients, appetizingly displayed prepared dishes, step-by-step series showing ingredients being made, and people lovingly portrayed going about their daily lives.

This book is BIG, no bedtime reading with this one, you won't be able to hold it up! If you love cookbooks for the way they tell the story of a country, the CULINARIA Greece is not to be missed.

Format: Paperback
I see that others have found this cookbook to be great, but I've had issues with all of the recipes I've tried. Sometimes the recipe is unclear, other times it just seems wrong. One example is the Baklava. The syrup called for 6 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar, the syrup is boiled for 5 minutes then simmered for an undefined amount of time then honey and lemon juice are added and brought to a boil one more time. This amount of cooking does not reduce it by much and 6 cups of syrup is way too much to be absorbed by the baklava. The recipe itself tasted great, there was just he slight problem of either too much liquid or not enough cook time. I've run into problems like this with almost every recipe I've tried. I'm learning to look up a similar recipe from a different source to check if quantities or cooktimes seem to be way off.

I do love that the book is broken into different regions and I love the bit of history that goes with each recipe or region. The photography is also great.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is without question, the finest collection of photos, anecdotal information, and cultural overview that I have ever experienced. At the turning of each page I was greeted with things that I had never heard of, or seen regarding Greek foods and spirits. As a second generation Greek-American, I had heard much from my yayias and papous (grandmothers and grandfathers) about the traditions and foods of their homeland, but their recollections were very localized. This wonderful book would be the equivalent of having hundreds of yayias and papous all spinning tales of what they did for the Easter Feast, or namesday celebrations, or the wonderful olive oil that they made in their old village. My only suggestion would be to increase the size of the fonts around the many beautiful photographs (which comes from the Greek words for light and writing--there you go). It looks like about a 6 point font, and is somewhat distracting. Yayia would need a magnifier to read them, but would nod approvingly and tell yet another story just like the one in the book.

I am a Greek-American and have been cooking since I was 5 years old. This book is the greatest, one volume, book on Greek Cuisine I have ever seen. Though I know a great deal about Hellenic Cuisine, even I learned a few things. The photography is FANTASTIC! The information is plenteous, accurate and very informative. Haven't tried any of the recipes, but they look good and authentic. The book covers Hellenic (Greek) Cuisine from region to region and is very thorough. It is also so beautiful, that it will make a great "coffee table book" as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!

First, I don't normally spend time writing reviews... this book has enticed me to sing of its praises.

When I was looking for a Mediterranean cookbook, I found a bunch of books on the specific diet. I thought it was interesting, but I didn't want to think of my cooking styles to be a "diet". So I decided to look for Italian, Spanish, Greek, etc cookbooks. I read reviews on this one and decided I'd try it over the other. I am so thrilled that I did! I happen to enjoy reading cookbooks (weird I know).

This cookbook is not just filled with recipes from the entire country of Greece (p.5 is a map of Greece sectioned out with the names of the regions and each region is a chapter in this book), it is also filled with culture! As I'm reading through this book, I feel like I am immersing myself into the Greek culture.

As one who had the opportunity to immerse herself into the Greek culture of a fantastic family who owned a house in Athens and on Andros Island, I was able to become one of the family for about a week. I worked in their gardens and fished in their seas while on my vacation. I learned a few words and learned that I loved Greek food and culture. Reading this cookbook has me reliving my memories and wishing I could do it again!

The author discusses everything from livestock, to harvesting pistachios (I may not do that, but I can improvise), to why they die their Easter eggs red, to death rituals, and wineries. If you don't want to read through the culture and are just interested in a "fish" recipe or "pasta" dish then all you have to do is turn to p.453 to check out the Index of Dishes or flip the page to the English Recipe Index; if your feeling Greek (or can read Greek) flip the page to the Greek recipe Index.

I must say... this is my new FAVORITE read and cookbook... until I find another anyways.
