Description: Now, for the first time in paperback, this comprehensive collection of traditional, easily prepared Greek recipes comes to American kitchens from the timeless Greek islands. 

More than 150 deliciously simple recipes, presented in a clear, step-by-step format, cover every aspect of Greek cuisine from tantalizing appetizers to sweet pastries. Among the fourteen recipe categories are sauces, soups, and macaroni, meat, and vegetable dishes, the mainstays of the Greek table. 

You'll learn how to prepare Greek hamburgers and stuffed cabbage as well as such sumptuous dishes as spinach pilaf served with a dash of ground mint and tangy fresh lemon juice; beef sausages simmered in tomato sauce; and fish covered in hot rosemary sauce. Golden-brown Easter bread, Greek doughnuts dipped in a thick honey syrup, and rich Turkish coffee are tempting desserts. 

Concise explanations of Greek cooking techniques and sample menus help you whip up inexpensive, mouth-watering Greek feasts. 

Interspersed with enchanting tales of Greek life and customs, The Simple Art of Greek Cooking is interesting reading -- and the essential Greek cookbook.
