5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for anybody who enjoys food!
Theodore Kyriakou's menus at The Real Greek and The Real Greek Souvlaki & Bar are inspired by dishes cooked in the homes of families in his Greek homeland; now he has taken this inspiration and, with co-writer Charles Campion, put it into his latest book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A real let down
With Charles Campion as a co-author I was anticipating a great cookery book. Instead its a book full of photographs of greek style doors, pot plants and view of the sea. Yes we all know what Greece looks like...but what about the food..?

There are some reasonable write ups about various places but for Greek Cookery I'd recommend "Greek Cooking" by Rena Salaman...

With Charles Campion as a co-author I was anticipating a great cookery book. Instead its a book full of photographs of greek style doors, pot plants and view of the sea. Yes we all know what Greece looks like...but what about the food..?

There are some reasonable write ups about various places but for Greek Cookery I'd recommend "Greek Cooking" by Rena Salaman and Jan Cutler ( also available on Amazon ) all the recipies work and its packed full of photos to help you along.

I returned my copy to Amazon for a refund.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is rubbish, 16 Oct. 2006
By 
This review is from: The Real Greek at Home: Dishes from the Heart of the Greek Kitchen (Mitchell Beazley Food) (Hardcover)
This book is rubbish if you want to learn anything other than Greek history of food and culture. It offers no pictures of the recipes, nor of presentation - instead showing pictures of old men smoking and the Virgin Mary. It appears to be designed for a Greek person who already has a great knowledge of Greek cooking. I see no point in the book recommending not to use British alternatives, without then explaining how to make the Greek version. I want my Money Back and will be asking. Otherwise, if you want a dust collector, I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for anybody who enjoys food!, 15 Nov. 2005
This review is from: The Real Greek at Home: Dishes from the Heart of the Greek Kitchen (Mitchell Beazley Food) (Hardcover)
Theodore Kyriakou's menus at The Real Greek and The Real Greek Souvlaki & Bar are inspired by dishes cooked in the homes of families in his Greek homeland; now he has taken this inspiration and, with co-writer Charles Campion, put it into his latest book.
On every page, recipes evoke the traditions of the Greek kitchen, warming the soul as well as the stomach. Dishes range from classics, such as dolmades and the sweet and sticky baklava, to the celebration lamb dishes prepared especially for Easter.
The style of dishes reflects the part of the country they hail from: simple fish dishes from the islands and more complex meat dishes from the cities.
Within the pages of this book, Theodore explores the varying influences that have shaped the all too often under-rated cuisine of Greece, and shares his passion and inspiration with us.
