Description: Have you ever taken a friend to a Greek festival and tried to explain how the Greek atmosphere, spirit, and way of life adds to the enjoyment of the traditional foods?
This essence of Greek cooking, the mood that goes along with the menu, is captured in the comments by the authors of this Greek meal planner and cookbook. The crash course in "going Greek" makes the book a good gift for non-Greek cooks as well as those who collect Greek recipes.
The book is organized by menus, outlining Greek dinners and presenting the recipes for the complete dinner together. The flair comes in the "accents" suggested by the authors, always keep olive oil, chicken stock, freshly ground pepper, lemons on hand, use a wooden spoon and home grown herbs, try dips with your meals, and develop a taste for retsina, Metaxa and Greek coffee.
The authors also devote brief write-ups to important elements in Greek cooking, such as basil, oregano, lemon, cheese, and yogurt.
The book is illustrated with black and white photos from many parts of Greece, and the large type makes it easy to refer to the recipes while stirring, basting, or kneading.
Condition: Good condition.
