Overview

Mediterranean culture, with its gift for hospitality and its love of food and drink, has a timeless and seductive appeal. In A Taste of the Aegean, Andy and Terry Harris offer a leisurely culinary tour of Greece and the many scattered islands of the Aegean Sea. Visiting village ouzeries, city restaurants, tavernas, and private homes, they explore the traditional methods of baking, cheese-making, spit-roasting, and the pressing of grapes and olives. To round out the excursion, there are recipes that have been passed down through the ages, from a simple salad of tomatoes, potatoes, capers, and onions to a robust dish of sausages with cracked green olives. In photos and narrative, A Taste of the Aegean is a pleasurable tour of Greece and its islands.
