We have been to Kokkari Restaurant countless times and finally bought the cookbook a year ago. Every recipe has been delicious and most are pretty simple. Last night, for a special anniversary dinner, I used 4 recipes: Tzatziki, Greek Salad, Grilled Lamb Chops and Kokkari Potatoes and they were all perfect...delicious, beautiful and fragrant. The book is so good that one might not have to go to the restaurant...except at the restaurant I don't have to do the dishes.

Another outstanding recipe is the Orzo Pilaf with Spiced Vegetables and Yogurt. Even my finicky, non eggplant eating friends loved this one. The Zucchini Cakes with Mint- Yogurt Sauce just disappear when I bring them out and I have had people come in to the kitchen early to make sure to get them. I prepare them as passed hors d'oeuvres in a smaller size with a dollop of the yogurt sauce on top. These take a little effort to make, but they freeze beautifully and reheat quickly in a hot oven. The Spiced Ground Lamb Skewers are delicious but I could not make them adhere to the (wide, flat) skewers and have served them as burgers or as mini meatballs for an hors d'oeuvres.

As an enthusiastic home chef I can whole-heartedly endorse this cookbook as it is well written, easy to follow, the photographs are and stories are wonderful, but most importantly, the results are outstanding.

This is an awesome cookbook! It's beautiful to look at,and the background stories are a delight to read. Excellent information about ingredients and preparation techniques. And the recipes! From Greek classics to grilled dishes to wonderful vegetables and sides, each recipe is a mouth-watering delight. I'm thinking of planning a trip to San Francisco just to eat at the restaurant. In the meantime, I'm starting to work my way through one fantastic recipe to another.

LOVE this cookbook. Have made many great recipes so far. Easy to follow instructions, just wish the cookbook was not printed in black can be a little hard to read.

This book is written by the owners of the Evvia, Palo Alto, California greek restaurant. It features the dishes that you can eat in that extraordinary restaurant. The recipes are authentic Greek and they do not cut any corners. The food is so yummy!

For example, in the book you can read how to make authentic greek yogurt, tsatsiki, taramosalata. The versions of these Greek traditional dishes presented in this book (and at Evvia) are so good compared to what you find in most American Greek restaurants.

We've been cooking through this cookbook for about a month now. The recipes are off the menu from their two restaurants in the Bay Area. Highly Recommended.

I bought the Kindle version of this and although it's a little hard to switch between chapters, the recipes are so outstanding that I still give it 5 stars. I've eaten in Kokkari quite a few times and these recipes yield very similar results minus of course that extra Kokkari chef magic.

My favorite recipes so far are the two sauces, skordalia ("dressing") and the tomato sauce, which I'm using in many other meals too. I also love the meatballs (both recipes) and roasted beets. The winter and fruit salads are basic and delicious.

The instructions are clear. Unfortunately the beautiful photos don't translate on Kindle vs. the printed cookbook, but that's fair enough considering Kindle is less than half the price plus I don't have to worry about ruining the pages - I'm a messy cook.

I am an avid cookbook collector/reader/cook and having bought this book last week, I have to declare it to be my current favorite. The book itself is beautiful - gorgeous photos of the restaurant and the food. I have already tried a number of the recipes and they are all excellent. Some of the best flavors and food I have ever made. I do not say that lightly - high praise for this book indeed. And must for those who like Greek food. 5 stars.
