Mad, Mad Mousaka!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vefa's Kitchen (Hardcover)
Whenever I've turned to Vefa's Kitchen for a dish I already know I like, I've been pleased with the results. However, sometimes when I just pick a dish at random the results have been a bit bland. Surely some people's tastes run to the bland side, so I'm not doubting the authenticity of the recipes.
That said, I just made the mousaka and it was the best mousaka I've ever had. And that's saying something, since Mousaka is the first dish I try at any new Greek restaurant I encounter. The book gets five stars just for teaching me to make my favorite dish just the way I like it.
When I'm feeling adventurous, I might turn to How to Roast a Lamb: New Greek Classic Cooking (try its gyro recipe!), but for good, classic Greek dishes, Vefa's Kitchen is now my first stop.
