Description: The Greek Cookbook is a translation and adaptation of Greece's best-selling cookbook, containing 500 of its choicest recipes. Yet all of these -- many of them exotic by American standards -- use American measurements and can be easily prepared from ingredients readily available to the American cook.
Phyllo, that versatile pastry used as the basis for many Greek entrees and appetizers as well as desserts, appears here in many delectable forms. Try the baklava with honey syrup, or Copenhagen (the pastry named for the Greek king who was originally a Danish prince).
You'll find excellent recipes too for the famed Greek dolmathes (rolled grape leaves) and yemista (stuffed vegetable preparations such as stuffed artichokes). You might prefer to sample a baked specialty like moussaka or one of the au gratins made with lamb, eggplant, or squash.
Having visitors? Welcome them as the Greeks do, with a choice of glykos or spoon sweets -- perhaps eggplant, or rose petal, or apricot. For a cocktail party, serve any of the marvelous canapes or hot hors d'oeuvres like taramosalata (pureed roe salad) and piroski (dumplings). And formal entertaining takes on a new exotic twist when you serve lamb on a spit or an octopus main course.
The Greek Cookbook also includes a glossary explaining all Greek culinary terms as well as examples of typical Greek menus. For the experienced cook who wants to prepare an authentic Greek banquet or the novice who wants to spice up an ordinary meal with a Greek specialty, The Greek Cookbook is indispensable
