Book Description

From the creator of the popular foodie blog Kopiaste to Greek Hospitality comes this visually stunning cookbook, based on the Mediterranean Diet.
A passionate cook and an avid follower of the Mediterranean Diet, Ivy Liacopoulou draws on her love of the Greek cuisine and of fresh and wholesome ingredients to produce over 250 simple to make yet delicious and healthy recipes, all created, taste-tested and photographed by herself.
From traditional dishes to healthy snacks and to guilt-free desserts, More Than A Greek Salad will inspire not only the novice and the experienced Greek cook alike but also anyone in search of a healthy lifestyle.
In Part 1, the reader is given to understand what The Mediterranean Diet is all about and what nutritional benefits one can derive from it.
The Mediterranean Diet comprises a cuisine hailed by dieticians and nutritionists the world over as one of the healthiest.
In More Than A Greek Salad, Ivy gives us more than the names of the ingredients and the directions needed to effect a most satisfying dish. She explains to us, in great detail, the what, the what with, the why, the how much and the when to eat that dish, all enormously important questions, if we are to get the most out of that dish when it comes to our needs for nourishment, for taste and, yes, even for entertainment!
In Part 2 Ivy presents us a culinary ensemble of over 250 recipes all accompanied by exquisite, mouthwatering photos that leave us inspired and itching to try them out in our own kitchen.
And these authentic, traditional recipes are not only dealt with fully and with the utmost respect that traditional recipes rightly deserve but have also, where necessary, been modified, so as to accommodate the needs of those wanting to shed those troublesome calories.
In More Than A Greek Salad, the reader will find a great many brand new recipes which are exclusive to this volume and which are solidly based on the principles of the Mediterranean Diet. Recipes for dishes with meat, with seafood, with vegetables, legumes, rice, pasta and with fruit.
New desserts have been created for More Than A Greek Salad and they have been created during a period which the author was struggling to lose weight herself and –the glowing proof of the pudding!- she had succeeded in losing no less than 18 kilos! A period of barely six months! And all this weight loss was achieved without the author having to drive herself or her family to the sad extremes of starvation!
"Simple" cooking or lifestyle certainly does not necessarily mean "bland" or "boring" food or living and the recipes Ivy brought together in this book exhibit most splendidly the wealth of flavours, the dazzling variety of ingredients, the limitless imagination, the utterly unfettered fun that is available to one who wishes to live a Mediterranean lifestyle.
Ivy, an avid believer in what Ms. Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie once said about "fish given" and "fishing taught," goes to great pains to explain everything that needs explaining about each of her dishes, from its origins as a dish to the origins of each of its ingredients, to its constituent nutrients, to its possible variations, to instructions on how to prepare the whole thing from scratch and even to what to do with your leftovers, in the rare instance that you may have any!
As well, in More Than A Greek Salad a glossary is also included to help the reader with the technical terms or with the names of rare ingredients that may prove to be bothersome.
The unique characteristic of the Mediterranean Diet is that it has no restrictions on what to eat but on how much to eat.
More Than A Greek Salad is a most exciting tome not simply of recipes but of a full, wholesome enjoyable lifestyle. It is a philosophy that binds food with health in our daily life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 2 Jan. 2014
By manoj.shroff - Published on
This is the second cook book from Ivy that I have read. Actually it is more than a cookbook, as the name suggest. The book provides a good view to Mediterranean diet and its origin along with some really good recipes. Peinirli is my favorite. The fact that Ivy experiments with her recipes is quite fascinating.
5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than what I expected 25 Dec. 2013
By Detsis - Published on
I wouldn't expect that such a treasure is hidden in this book. The book goes beyond making an impression with fancy photographs and gives detailed recipes along with the history and pros/cons of each one. It explains the concept of the mediterranean diet and how this could be implemented. This book is particularly helpful for anyone that plans to visit Greece or Cyprus, ready to discover the local cuisine. I loved it!
