    Great cookbook with helpful notes and tips

    The recipes are very easy to follow, plus there are tips on how to make some of the recipes using a food processor. There's also a section at the back on how to work with phyllo.

    Perfect

    My mother used the original edition of this cookbook (which I inherited) and I received this edition at my bridal shower 9 years ago. Every recipe is easy to follow and the dishes are ones you would find in the homes of the best Greek and Greek American cooks. The preparation tips are also excellent and helpful.

    Best cookbook ever!

    I purchased the original first edition 35 years ago and thought that one was good. This one is the best yet. Everything that I've prepared is simply delicious! It is a true testament to the wonderful cooks at St. Paul's. I have given the book as gifts and those that have received it, have expressed the same sentiments. Bravo!
