I first found this cook book in a used book store: Since then I have seen it in every Greek food store I've been in.

This book lacks pictures, but makes up for it with easy to follow, perfect-every-time recipes.

I'm happy to find I can still order a copy of Eva Zane's cookbook. I need to replace the one I've been using since the early 70's . . . one that's currently bound with a rubberband. Although my family has enjoyed everything we've made from the book, one of our all-time favorites is Spaghetti with Clam Sauce. It gets rave reviews from everyone, including my kids. I have other Greek cookbooks, but this is the one I USE.

I bought my first copy of this book when I was 15 years old. My mother was an exceptional greek cook, and I always thought this cookbook was the closest thing to my mom's authentic greek cuisine. (In fact some of the recipes are better) When I was first married, I used the book and it eventually fell apart. I searched and found another copy. The same thing happened to the second one. I'm looking for my 3rd one now. I have purchased several greek cook books in the past and I still think Greek Cooking for the gods has the best and most authentic greek recipes available today. I have been using it for over 30 years.

Eva Zane provides some wonderful versions of traditional Greek dishes. Her directions for assembling some of the more complicated dishes are very helpful and easy to follow. Most ethnic foods are influenced by other cultures and by conquerering nations. Many Middle-Eastern countries share similar dishes prepared with only slight variations. Greek Cooking for the Gods is an excellent source for preparing Greek food; even we Greeks use it when we don't have our family recipes to rely on!

I first found this cook book in a used book store: Since then I have seen it in every Greek food store I've been in. I haven't cooked everything in it, but everything I have cooked has been delicious! The Fassolada recipe alone is worth the price. Every Greek cook I know recommends it! I know of no other cook book that stands so completely alone in its field.

As a non Greek married to a Greek, I received this book from my husband in 1971. He marked all the dishes that his mother cooked and I started to try to prepare them. Throughout the years I have used the book as guide and the compliments from my mother in law and Greek friends have been wonderful.I have tried other books however I keep coming back to this one. I have been told that I cook Greek food better than most Greeks. I purchased this book for my daughter and now she has become an excellent cook of Greek foods. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to cook like a real Greek cook.

my copy of this book is in terrible shape...an indication of how much I use it. It was one of only 3 cookbooks I dragged across the world from Canada to Dubai! The pastitso recipe is great; so is the galatoboureko...but you can't go wrong with any recipe in the book.

This book has been circulating in my family for 3 generations, and our "bible" when preparing all holiday meals!!! We'd never prepare anything without it. Being of Greek descent, that pretty much says it all.....enjoy!!!!!
