About the Author
Ivy Liacopoulou was born in Limassol, Cyprus. She worked in the Airline industry for many years and later on opened a bookstore, which she run for several years. After early retirement in 2007, she created her blog "Kopiaste" and decided to record the traditional recipes of her country, as a heritage to her children. The author is an experienced home cook, being married for many years. She worked in a family restaurant in Cyprus, as an Assistant chef and now is a culinary instructor, in Nafplion, Peloponnese, Greece, where she lives. Ivy belongs to a new generation of home cooks who loves to experiment and create new recipes of her own. Her creativeness and passion for cooking are depicted in her blog, “Kopiaste”. For those who do not know Greek, “kopiaste” is an expression often used in Cyprus and is a polite way of inviting somebody to come inside. It literally means “make an effort to” but it is also synonymous to “welcome”. In Cyprus, we say “kopiaste” when we want to invite someone in our house, to share our food with others or when we open our house to friends and invite them to come and make themselves at home. So, in her way Ivy is inviting you into her virtual kitchen to share with you her recipes and all her “little” secrets , behind hundreds of home-style recipes that have been part of her family's heritage for many years. After cooking her recipes, you will taste and scent the delectable, mouthwatering aromas of cinnamon, mint and blossom water, the predominant flavours of Cypriot cuisine, which hopefully will evoke wonderful memories.
It is extremely difficult to find a Cypriot cook book. Whilst I have yet to try a recipe, I can say that the book has a wide variety of traditional Cypriot recipes which are explained as well as step by step photos where required.
As I said, If you want to know how to cook the real food of Cyprus then look no further! This is a book that provides the recipes for some of the finest food. I also strongly recommend volume 2, and the paperback version. The recipes that I have used from the book have worked out very well, so Kopiaste!
Lovely book with great recepies! I am married to Greek and live in Cyprus...so this book is like having a mother in law on stand by. If you want traditional food, that is eaten by greek local people this is good as it gets. Author is a lovely lady who can be contacted for suport on facebook or twitter and she is very helpful should you need some advice.
