Go to food.com and type in "Greek recipes" and you'll find 4,372 that will have the same pictures because that's where this thief got them.
Oh, the third one in the list is the "Greek-Style Turkey Burgers" including the picture with the 3 tomato slices that this fake "author" stole.
"Low-Fat Sugar-Free and Non-Dairy Caesar Salad Dressing", also stolen of food.com is NOT Greek but Mexican in origin. It does not refer to Julius Caesar, the Roman (near Greece) from history but an Italian named Caesar Cardini in Tijuana, Mexico in 1924.
In a previous Greek food book,authored by two other fake authors (Pearl Dooley and Lauren White) dreamed up by this cheating publisher, the same recipes appear! That's how lazy this thief is.
This is just round #249 of these fake books created by Muhammad N Sikandar, the Grand Pooh-bah of Pakistani Pilfering or Grand Pooh-bah of Pakistani Plagiarizing (both titles are well deserved even if apologies are due Gilbert and Sullivan) because he wrote this book with the various "fake author" titles and fake publisher info a LONG time ago and recycles these stolen recipes and pictures ever so often under new names and dates hoping new buyers will "bite" and waste their time and money!
One should also question the honesty of some of the reviewers who think this fake author really knows about these foreign foods when she doesn't even exist! He just piles on the reviews knowing full good and well his pal,Muhammad N Sikandar, teaches people how to steal these recipes and write these books. In fact, he even calls him "a young Pakistani entrepreneur" knowing full well that Muhammad teaches people to steal works and words from other people. But that's a sham for another day's discussion.
Don't support thieves such as this.
Yogurt Barley Soup, Low Fat Hummus, Salsa,
Shrimp Bells, Greek Gyro and a delicious Village
Each recipe has a full color picture, detailed description
of the preparation and the nutrient content. This reviewer
found the nutrient content very valuable for dieters
concerned about sugar and saturated fat. There could have
been some substitutions like stevia for sugar and Kosher salt for
Otherwise, the preparations emulate Greek cooking. Besides,
the book is being offered free this weekend and that price
won't hold for very long.
The book includes recipes for Greek Appetizer Recipes (Greek Appetizer Bites, Low Fat Greek Hummus, Delicious Greek Salsa, Mini-Pitas With Cheddar, Feta, and Olives, Caponata-Delicious Roasted Vegetables and others); Greek Main Dish Recipes (Greek-Style Turkey Burgers, Greek Gyro Meat, Greek Penne and Chicken, Zesty Chicken Oregano, Spaghetti With Tomatoes, Black Olives, Garlic, and Feta Cheese, Perfect Barbecued Lamb Chops and others); Greek Salad Recipes (Classic Greek Lettuce Salad, Greek Village Salad, Cucumber With Feta Cheese and Mint, Greek Artichoke Salad, Spinach Cucumber Salad With Yogurt Dressing and others); Greek Soup Recipes (Yogurt-Barley Soup, Fassoulada (Bean Soup), Manestra - Poor Greek Soup, Greek Tahini Soup, Greek Pasta Soup and others).
Healthy, easy, nutritious and delicious. Grady Harp, July 14
None of the recipes are complex, nor are the ingredients particularly exotic in themselves, having found everything needed easily at the local grocery store if I hadn't already had a supply in the cupboards. And to have four repeated favorites from one small cookbook alone is a worthy note for me to recommend it to others. :)
Some of the dishes are not Greek at all - antipasti di tonno e fagoili is Italian for 'snacks of tuna and beans'. It certainly has a Mediterranean flavor, but I still cringe at the canned ingredients. Moreover, if this were Greek the recipe would have called for fresh lemon juice instead of vinegar. Many of the recipes are like that, but, again, an inexperience cook would probably use the same approach so this book has some value to a segment of the population.
I do like the fact that each recipe has nutritional values for the finished meal. I have not thoroughly analyzed them to ensure their accuracy, but at first glance they look right.
To be fair there are some gems in this book that are fairly authentic. An example is the Cretan Barley Rusk Meze. I cannot vouch for this being a specifically Crete meze, but it has a ring of authenticity to it in both ingredients and preparation.
Bottom line: if you want to add quasi-exotic dishes to your dinner table that are easy to make, this is not a bad book. If you are expecting authentic Greek food the way a Greek would prepare it, this is NOT the book for you.
