Product description

Amazon Review

The intoxicating tastes and smells of Greece rise from Rosemary Barron's pages with almost unbearable intensity. Flavours of Greece is a wonderfully evocative portrait of a cuisine still in many ways tied to the seasons and the rhythms of village life. Here are meat or fish scented with bay grilling over olive or pinewood, luscious, aromatic, slow-cooked stews, baked stuffed vegetables, pungently spicy sausages, sweets rich with honey, fruit and nuts. We may think we know Greek food quite well, but Flavours of Greece is packed with recipes that take us a long way from the over-familiar Moussaka, Souvlakia, Kleftiko. In particular, Rosemay Barron, who has run a celebrated Greek cookery school in Crete, has a hoard of enticingly different dishes characteristic of the cooking of the islands, savoury dishes often enriched with honey and spices that hint at both the Ottoman occupation and great antiquity. So besides the more familiar dishes, there are others as diverse as Peppered Dried Figs, Island Aubergines, Baked Sole in Vine Leaves, Turnips and Grapes in Aromatic Sauce, Peppery Grilled Liver, Spinach or Fennel Bread and Glazed Sweet Chestnuts. Crowning the whole magnificent cuisine is the great dish of the Greek Orthodox Easter, Paschal Lamb, traditionally cooked on a spit by men--perhaps a glimpse of the ritual prehistory of the all-male barbecue ceremony. --Robin Davidson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Practical and charmingly evocative" Claudia Roden Rosemary Barron has a love affair with Greece, its culture, its people and it's food, which she shares with us brilliantly in her book" --Barbara Kafka

'One of the best guides to Greek regional food in the English language. The recipes are foolproof. For a true taste of Greece, this is the book to reach for.' --Delicious magazine

Flavours of Greece is an exceptional cookery book, beautifully written and full of delightful recipes. A short review cannot do it justice. Go buy it. --Matthew's Table

A great gift for the serious cook. --The Daily Express
