What a fabulous cookbook. I have many Greek cookbooks, but this is by far the best. It is not as thick as most cookbooks but includes all of the recipes that you would make at home. Also, all of the items on the menu at Marina's restaurant are included and absolutely foolproof and easy to make. I loved that she had stories about her family and growing up Greek as well as the recipes. It made me feel that I was sitting in her kitchen while she was cooking and listening to her stories about her family. Just wonderful cookbook.

I'm so glad Marina Kamilatos has collected her family recipes in a book! I have eaten at her restaurant for years....it's a marvelous experience each time. She and her family care deeply about the food and it shows, her dishes sparkle with flavor and love. Whether you think you like Greek food or not, you will after you read this book...Marina will make you a believer! It's for both those who love Greek cuisine already and those who are new to it.

It's not just ingredients that make a meal and feed us, but family and history. Marina Kamilatos always welcomes everyone to her table as if they were family.The book is a treasure trove generations in the making. We aren't all lucky enough to have a Greek YiaYia (Grandmother). Marina generously shares hers with us!

Thank you Marina!

Format: Paperback
This is a delightful book. It includes a large collection of Cephallonian recipes as well as several impressive photographs, all of which were taken by the author herself. Lourdas (or Lourdata) is now one of the main tourist resorts on the island of Cephallonia and perhaps the most beautiful, as the photos show. This region of the Ionian island is also noted for its rich variations of Greek cuisine. For instance, the author (also a recognised chef with her own restaurant) includes her own family variation of 'skorthalia' (also called 'aliadha' in Cephallonia and Zante). There is also a welcome variety of recipes, reflecting the author's dual Cephallonian and Macedonian heritage.
One enjoyable part of the book is the author's information about her own family life as well as various traditions and customs related to certain recipes. For instance, the note that 'kourmbiethes' (the white sugar-covered sweets popular at Christmastime) are also used at weddings. This is one of the best Greek cookery books available and is beautifully illustrated and well-researched. It is written from the author's lifelong experience, leaarning recipes from her mother and grandmother and from her own experience as a noted chef. Even for those who love Greek food and who already have a few Greek cookbooks, then I am sure that there will be several recipes here that have not been printed elsewhere. One of the best books witten about Cephallonia in recent years!

The recipes look great but how could they publish a book with a table of contents in Greek, not English, and not include an index?
They should fire their editor and/or publisher.

But I am planning to make a Greek dinner tonight. Will let you know how it goes.
