About the Author

Ivy Liacopoulou was born in Limassol, Cyprus. She worked in the Airline industry for many years and later on opened a bookstore, which she run for several years. After early retirement in 2007, she created her blog "Kopiaste" and decided to record the traditional recipes of her country, as a heritage to her children. The author is an experienced home cook, being married for many years. She worked in a family restaurant in Cyprus, as an Assistant chef and now is a culinary instructor, in Nafplion, Peloponnese, Greece, where she lives. Ivy belongs to a new generation of home cooks who loves to experiment and create new recipes of her own. Her creativeness and passion for cooking are depicted in her blog, “Kopiaste”. For those who do not know Greek, “kopiaste” is an expression often used in Cyprus and is a polite way of inviting somebody to come inside. It literally means “make an effort to” but it is also synonymous to “welcome”. In Cyprus, we say “kopiaste” when we want to invite someone in our house, to share our food with others or when we open our house to friends and invite them to come and make themselves at home. So, in her way Ivy is inviting you into her virtual kitchen to share with you her recipes and all her “little” secrets , behind hundreds of home-style recipes that have been part of her family's heritage for many years. After cooking her recipes, you will taste and scent the delectable, mouthwatering aromas of cinnamon, mint and blossom water, the predominant flavours of Cypriot cuisine, which hopefully will evoke wonderful memories.

For anyone wanting to learn about Cypriot cuisine, this is your bible! When I read on Ivy's website, Kopiaste.org, that she had released her cookbook, I didn't expect 230 recipes in the form of two fabulous volumes. Filled with clear explanations and background history to the mouthwatering recipes, each volume is beautifully illustrated. I love how she includes different versions of classic recipes: such as her Mum's beetroot salad, a beetroot salad using the leaves plus her own take on the classic. Suddenly my tourist recipe book I bought many years ago in Cyprus has been pushed aside on the cookbook shelf; the master of Cypriot cuisine has arrived!

I, too, have been a fan of Ivy's blog for several years, but, living in Cyprus, never felt a need to by a Cypriot cookbook (I have a mother-in-law, after all!). Then I decided to buy it, as I wanted to see how Ivy presented some of her dishes, and I'm very glad that I did. The book is informal and accessible, well illustrated -- often with step-by-step photos to show you how your creation should look -- and complete with anecdotes about Ivy's childhood and mother (who taught her cooking) and ideas for substitute ingredients should those called-for not be available. There are very few Cypriot (as distinct from Greek) cookbooks written in English, and this is one that I would certainly recommend.

I recently purchased and downloaded both volumes of Ivy's KOPIASTE. It is an amazing cookbook, with great recipes and excellent instructions. Each recipe that I have tried to make has motivated me to make yet another and another. Ivy delivered my purchase promptly and courteously, with a nice personal note encouraging me to contact her if I had any questions or concerns.

I have made the pastitsio, the keftedes, the tyropita and many other wonderful recipes. Cookies are next on my list. My husband and friends have raed about these recipes and have devoured everything I have made from Ivy's books. I have pastitsio cooking right now and the house is filled with the wonderful aromas of Ivy's recipe.

I recommend KOPIASTE to everyone.

I have been following Kopiaste blog for a while and I finally managed to buy the book it brings back memories of being in the kitchen with my mum cooking. Excellently and simply explained with additional information and nice photos.

I think every home library should have "Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water." As I go through the pages, I am amazed at how nicely this book represents Cypriot cuisine and how appropriate the recipes are for a healthy lifestyle. It's also the only book I've found where I can find Cypriot recipes in excellent detail. Flavours of Cyprus took me back to my childhood with its delicious desserts, pastries, and wholesome meals. I look forward to sharing them with my family and friends. In fact, I noticed some recipes that I haven't seen or tasted since I can't remember when! I have busy days ahead creating these tasty recipes myself. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who is fond of good, healthy eating. A very big thank you to Ivy Liacopoulou!

Fantastic cook book by Ivy Liacopoulou. I bought Volume 2 after trying several recipes in Voume 1 that came out the way I expected them. Coming from Cyprus myself I know what a Cypriot dish is supposed to taste, and you can count on this book to give you the best results. The author was extremely helpful to me when I e-mailed her and asked her a question.
I stronly recommend Mrs. Liacopoulou's cook books/

Well Ivy the author was born in Limassol and my husband was born in Limnatti and my son in law is smitten by Cypriot pita bread so I'm just looking for the optimum recipe. If it wasn't for the family connections to Cyprus I would say that the book was overpriced and not very professionally produced however the cover looks great on the bookshelf and Mint Cinnamon & rose water are sure the flavours and I would buy it again as a gift
