This is a fabulous book - not only full of delicious, authentic and easy to follow recipes, but also a bit of history, a bit of Greek mythology and plenty of anecdotes about the many Paxiots that Belinda Harley has befriended over the years. This book has its place as much on a coffee table as it does in the kitchen. Who knew, for example, that St Fanourios is the patron saint of lost things and that if you want help to find them, you should bake little cakes? I can't say that I have found what I lost, but I can say that the little orange and almond cakes were delicious. My family are also pretty amazed at my attempt at rustic bread. Truly written with love, this book makes a wonderful present and I will be buying copies for my friends.

Diet, Belinda Harley tells us in `Roast Lamb in the Oliver Groves,' comes from the Ancient Greek word `dieta' which means a way of life. For us today, a healthy diet can only really become a way of life if it is enjoyable and achievable day to day. Living in Britain, one doesn't have access to veg nourished by the Mediterranean sun. It is lucky, then, that Harley often translates these traditional recipes for the modern world. The recipes in this book are inspired by the island of Paxos, were the food is simple, clean, sociable and, above all, delicious.

Having lived on a Mediterranean-style diet for years for my health, it is great to try out some of these dishes. Avgolemono is an unctuous soup made from light chicken stock, lemon, egg-whites and no salt. (In fact, many of these dishes require little salt because too much of the stuff inhibits the cooking processes.) It is also resourceful, as this dish encourages you to poach a chicken to make a stock for the soup, and then serve the chicken immediately after as a healthier alternative to a roast. There is good advice for preparing anything from fish carpaccios to a rustic chickpea stew which only has two ingredients.

It is incredibly useful to have a book of healthy recipes which doesn't start from the principal of subtraction: indulgent ingredients swapped for less satisfying ones. Instead, health has always been effortlessly inherent in these recipes. Nothing unhealthy is substituted because unhealthy things weren't there in the first place.

The book is also full of gorgeous photographs of beautifully presented food, and lyrically described. How fabulous that small chunks of lemon flesh are called `lemon tears' by the Greeks! Take this book, and feast on your life.
