Description: In Recipes from a Greek Island, Susie Jacobs ushers us into an extraordinary land of crystalline blue seas, sun-drenched gardens and orchards, and hillsides of fragrant herbs. The traditional cuisine of the Greek islands, known for vivid tastes and incredible variety, springs naturally from the rich bounty of this hauntingly beautiful landscape. 

For starters, try Agria Manitaria me Yaourti, Wild Mushrooms in Yogurt Sauce, or Garithosoupa me Scorthalia, Shrimp and Red Pepper Soup with Almond-Garlic Sauce. Main course dishes include Kotopoulo me Syka, Chicken with Figs in Red Wine; Lithrini Plaki, Sea Bream Baked with Tomatoes and Olives; Arnaki Frikasse, Fricassee of Spring Lamb with Romaine Lettuce; and Zymarika me Revithia ke Panzaria, Pasta with Chickpeas and Chard garnished with crumbled feta cheese. Best of all, these are among the healthiest recipes in the world, emphasizing fresh and light ingredients with no compromise as to taste.

Recipes such as Verikoka Yemista, Apricots Filled with Smoked Trout and Fresh Dill, or Barbounia se Klimatofila, Red Mullet Grilled in Grape Leaves and Drizzled with a Fennel and Lemon Sauce, may be good for you, but they are also utterly delicious. 

The Greek islands, the stepping stones of the Mediterranean, have been known throughout the centuries for their great assortment of produce and foodstuffs. In "Ingredients from a Greek Kellari" Susie Jacobs introduces us to the staples of the Greek kitchen, with fascinating accounts of the origins of various ingredients and their use in ancient times. Superb photographs convey the beauty of the Greek islands and capture, as well, the details of traditional life and cooking in these ancient lands.
