The photos are truly beautiful and make you want to just sit down and browse through this book for the sheer pleasure of it.
What I like most of all is that the name of the dishes are first written in Greeklish (using the Anglo alphabet) then in English and finally, in smaller print, using the Greek alphabet.
I have bought a number of Greek cook books, but I have found this one the most accessible and true to my experience of Greece and Greek cooking. Congratulations!
Authentic Greek recipes are included for appetizers, soups, main dishes, breads, salads, and desserts. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the recipes weren't as complicated as I thought they would be and with a few exceptions contain ingredients that can be found in larger grocery stores. The exceptions (for me) are the five recipes that use octopus, squid, or rabbit; ingredients that my local grocery store doesn't typically stock. There are also several recipes for lamb which may be easier to find but tends to be more seasonal in my area.
I've tagged several recipes to try such as Fried Tomato Fritters, Baked Feta Cheese, Olive Bread, and Baked Fish With Tomato. I did make the Yiaourtopita (yogurt cake), a simple, moist cake made with Greek yogurt that pairs well with any kind of fruit for a light dessert.
While this cookbook probably won't be my go-to source for everyday cooking, it does inspire me to try some new dishes from an ethnic cuisine I'm not familiar with.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
and has missed Greece and her people since returning home last August.
I had read about this book in the Charlotte Observer and gave it to her for her birthday.
She loves it!!!
These are not fancy dishes from up and coming Greek chefs: These are the foundation recipes that Greek people--close to their ethnicity--probably know by heart.
I'm glad to have it, and if you are looking for solid, basic, traditional Greek recipes--plus some riffs on traditional ingredients and flavors--then I recommend you take a look at this book. You might not find a whole lot of "keepers" in it, so you might be wise to check it out from your library before buying.
