28 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Food lover in Greece on November 27, 2005
Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Hardcover
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.

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.

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!

This is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I own. I have found many staple recipes in this book that I love to make and all the recipes I have tried have turned out amazing! My favorite is the lamb orzo dish, I can't recall if it requires Kasseri cheese but that is what I use. I also make my own lamb stock out of the bones and use that instead of water for the orzo to absorb and use my own canned tomatoes rather than fresh or ones from the store. It's a comfort dish that is a great cooking endeavor for winter.

As a long time chef and cook(35 years plus), I love this book. The recipes are excellent, as are all in the Culinaria series, but what I like most is the way the book describes the lifestyles and attitudes behind the recipes. I work in a Greek restaurant, and this book lives in my work station. At work, it is a powerful tool to make Greek dishes not commonly seen in restaurants. A great reference tool. All in all, I recommend this book for all that want to cook authentic Greek cuisine.
