About the Author


Helen Tsanos Sheinman was raised in London, England, by Cypriot parents. After graduating from King's College, London with a B.A. in philosophy, modern Greek literature, and linguistic studies, she moved to New York where she served as a diplomat at the Consul General of the Republic of Cyprus to the United Nations. Although she has no formal training as a chef, Helen learned to cook at a young age and loves to spend time preparing meals for her family and friends. This is her first book.

Format: Hardcover
now this is how a book should be put together. I feel like I've been to Cyprus and never left my couch. The text is very interesting and I feel I know this author intimately....the pictures of her country, family, friends, and cultural places, things etc. are really well done. i've prepared a couple of the recipes already and nothing tastes like these dishes, so I feel very blessed to have a new cultural cuisine that is healthy, hearty and clearly easy to make (since I could do it).

Highly recomnended...One thing, it states its a hardcover, but mine is a softcover.

just a great cook book, travel book, cultural/educational read...will give a few of these out as Christmas presents for sure...well done.

What a beautifully presented book! The photos are amazing and as both of my parents were Greek-Cypriot, I could really relate to it. The recipes are easy to follow and bring back fond memories of my relatives whipping up some of these yummy dishes for me on my recent trip to the beautiful island of Cyprus.

A great read and a fabulous resource. I loved being swept away by Helen's story and her Greek ancestry. I am looking forward to cooking some of the recipes.

This book is an absolute delight! It is perfect for gift giving too. There are tons of high quality photos and the quality of paper is perfect. The point of view is also delightful (sharing a family's journey from cyprus to america). The recipes are easy to prepare and accurate. I prepare some recipes from this cookbook over and over again especially the Louvana soup (a great inspiration of yellow split pea soup which is light yet bright with a hint of sunshine from the lemmon). I also love the faggi (lentils with rice). The custard with rose water and cardamon is delicious. I would have loved to see more recipes in this book because each one is so easy and tasty. I would definitely buy this for yourself or for gift.
