Description: Here is a perfect addition to your kitchen shelf: a complete selection of the most delicious and most popular Greek recipes -- with directions that leave nothing to chance. Included are not only standard Greek recipes, such as Souvlakia (Grilled Meat on Skewers), Spanokopetes (Spinach Cheese Puffs), Fakee (Lentil Soup), Skorthalia (Garlic Sauce), but also some wonderful variations and unusual traditional foods, such as Prassopeta (Leek and Meat Pie), Kota Methismeni (Brandied Chicken with Cream), Anginares Pilafi (Artichokes Pilaf), Karithopeta (Walnut Cake), and Vasilopita (New Year's Bread). All the recipes have been chosen with accessibility of ingredients in mind, and with the Hellenic love for fresh, simple food and ease of preparation.
You can make the most delectable cookies, pastries, and breads that will "melt in your mouth like butter," but before they do, you will delight in how beautiful they look -- various twists, braids, rolls, layered phyllo, garnished with honey, nuts, and other sweet decorations. The more time-consuming recipes, such as the famous Moussaka and Pastitsio, have been broken down into simple steps and include time- saving, anxiety-calming hints for inexperienced cooks. Carefully drawn illustrations accompany the directions for dishes that require special handling, and there are helpful hints throughout for preparing everything from salads to squid.
In addition, Cooking and Baking the Greek Way contains essential discussions on Greek cheeses, olives, wines and liqueurs, coffee, and herbs. Another unique feature of the book is the Shoppers' Guide, which includes stores in nearly every state in the union that sell Greek specialties.
This one-volume collection of the best of Greek cooking is timeless, distinctive, and authentic. It will stimulate even the most unseasoned cook to become an aficionado of cooking and baking the Greek way.
