With a culinary heritage shaped by the sun, the sea and the Meditteranean landscape, Greek cuisine is bursting with rich flavours and fresh ingredients. This book is all about translating and recreating the evocative tastes, textures and traditions of Greek food easily in your own kitchen. The introductory section of the book opens with a history of Greek cuisine and its regional influences, and then gives full details on how to choose the best ingredients and how to prepare these foods. The recipe section offers more thn 160 authentic dishes, both classic and modern - mezes, soups, main courses, vegetables dishes and dessers. Every recipe is tested for the modern kitchen and uses ingredients that can now be found in the local supermarket. All recipes are illustrated step by step, demonstrated visually so they are easy to follow and copy with confidence, and there is glorious photograph of every finished dish, to show the reader exactly what to aim for. Mezes include such delights as Grilled Vegetable Terrine, Stuffed Vine Leaves, and Taramasalata. For the main course, there are wonderful dishes such as Spring Lamb Casserole with Fresh Peas, and Grilled Swordfish Skewers. For those with a sweet tooth, mouthwatering specialities such as Walnut Cake or Sifnos Cheese and Honey Tart can be served for dessert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent instructions and great photography 10 May 2010
By A. Byrnes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific book. I have had a copy for a long time and have just bought a copy for a friend as a present.

The book opens with a look at the culture of cooking in Greece and the Islands. It then has an extremely useful section, The Greek Kitchen, which goes through all the main ingredients that you are likely to tackle. This is particularly useful when you may be unfamiliar with a particular ingredient.

Pages 65 to 251 are the recipes. The recipes are divided into sections: Mezedes and Appetizers, Soups, Fish and Shellfish, Poultry and Game, Meat Dishes, Vegetarian Meals, Side Dishes and Salads, Desserts Tarts and Cakes, and Sweets, Pastries, Cookies and Breads.

Following the title of the recipe, in English except where a dish is very specific to Greece (like Kleftiko), there is a short comment about the recipe, sometimes with serving instructions or recommended ingredients. Next the servings are shown (usually 4-6 for a main course) and this is followed by a list of ingredients. Numbered instructions are shown beneath. At the bottom of the recipe are the vital statistics: energy, protein, carbohydrate, Fat, Cholesterol, calcium, Fibre and Sodium.

The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. If you follow them precisely you shouldn't go wrong.

Each recipe is accompanied by a colour photograph of the finished product and many are also illustrated with photographs showing various stages during the making of the recipe. The photographs are of enormous use to me as I very much like to see what it is that I am working towards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book but... 1 Mar 2013
By Wil Andersen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
..it is the same book as The Complete Book of Greek Cooking. I naively thought they were separate works but Amazon has credited me for the duplication so all praise to them for that.

The Complete Book is a large format paperback and the type is substantially larger - which at my age is helpful. This is more compact, has the benefit of being hardback but I thought the type was a little small and the layout a little crowded. Of the two I would choose for everyday use The Complete....The texts and pictures appear identical.

Given the authors you would expect it to be excellent - and it is. My copy is much used.
