Some 'Village Bread' that's calorie free!,
This review is from: Village Bread, Olive Oil and a Grandmother's Blessings (Kindle Edition)
Village Bread, Olive Oil and a Grandmother's BlessingsI never thought I would be glad I had kept a dental appointment! But I am, because in doing so, I came across the most delightful book written by my dentist Elena Demetriou about her life in Cyprus and her travels abroad.
But it is much much more than that. Elena tells of how things were in the past - sharing details of a traditional Cypriot wedding like her parents had, telling of the wonderful food that the island offers, and then at the end of the book giving details of some of her families best Cypriot recipes.
This book has the lot. Facts about Cyprus, funny stories concerning the things that sometimes occur on the island, and fabulous photos, taken by Elena's incredibly talented professional photographer husband Nektarios.
If you have never visited Cyprus, this book will make you want to hop onto the next plane. If you have had good holidays there, it will bring many memories flooding back. This book is a gem, and bucks the current trend of grubby stories that leave the reader feeling unclean and starved of food for the soul.
So, why not stock up your book shelves with some wholesome Village Bread and Olive Oil? It's like the best diet - and calorie free!
If you only read one book in the next twelve months, make sure it's this one. You'll be so glad you did.
