A Wonderful Source of Traditional Greek Recipes
As the Greek Food Host at Bella Online, I refer to many Greek cookbooks. Greek Cooking For Everyone is one of my favorites. The recipes are very traditional, yet the ingredients are readily available to American cooks. The first few pages of the cookbook offer background information on the staples of Greek cuisine, and tips on stocking a Greek kitchen, which is very helpful and informative. This cookbook is divided into menus rather than types of food (i.e. 'meat menus', 'fish menus', etc.), so that each section provides a meal complete with appetizers and side dishes. Most recipes are for four or more people, so if you are looking for recipes for two, you will have to adjust the measurements. Although this is not the type of cookbook that includes professional, color photographs of Greece, it is a very handy reference and a great source of traditional Greek recipes.

What a flop! I attempted to make Moussaka....followed the direct
What a flop! I attempted to make Moussaka....followed the directions correctly... The Bechamel cream could be a lot more than what they had here. It came out to be a big meat sauce and vegetable dish with no shape..Disgusting! My mother makes an Awesome Moussaka and better than any chef on the planet.I swear! I should tell her to write her own book! I would like to know who told these two ladies they have talent in this..lol!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Better Baklava Somewhere Else
I bought this because the baklava recipe most matched a great recipe I remember from years ago. However in making this recipe some of the quantities were way off and the phyllo layering instructions were wanting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
