4.0 out of 5 stars Great cookbook - very well done!, December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Country Cooking of Greece (Hardcover)
A wonderful addition to my collection. Country Cooking of Greece is not just a cookbook but also an ode to an entire school of cooking with little stories, anecdotes and pictures spread throughout. I've tried a number of the recipes and so far none of them have let me down. I love that she took the time to explain various ingredients as well, such as the difference between Greek and Mexican oregano. The entire volume is very well done.

The book does have two minor drawbacks. The first is once in a while some of the ingredients aren't quite made clear or there are no suggested substitutes for things not available in this country (or hard to find). One recipe calls for "sausage, preferably seasoned with fennel" and that's it. There are so many types of sausage it would have been nice to have more clarification (and sweet italian sausage works well in the recipe). While not a problem for experienced cooks, this might cause problems for people just starting out.
