There are few good Greek cookbooks available; the Recipe Club of St. Paul's Complete Book of Greek Cooking ( LJ 4/15/90) is an exception and a useful basic introduction to the cuisine. Kochilas's more ambitious book includes background on the country and its customs, wine recommendations with each recipe, and informative headnotes on dishes as familiar as Baklava, as exotic as Snail and Bulgur Pilaf. For subject collections.
