Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the loveliest cookbook imaginable, full of splendid recipes and lore, and moreover just shining with Diane Kochila's intelligent passion for the cuisines of Greece." —Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook

"The Greek Vegetarian is an important book, because it brings together a broad spectrum of vibrant, healthy, delicious dishes. Diane Konchilas manages to cover a lot of Greek territory here, yet she never leaves us behind." —Martha Rose Shulman, author of Mediterranean Light and Mexican Light

"A gifted storyteller and inspired cook, Diane Konchilas has brought the heart, soul, and spirit of the Greek table to us. The recipes are both mouthwatering and simple to prepare. I love this book." —Marie Simmons, author of Rice, the Amazing Grain and Fresh & Fast

Library Journal
Well known for her books on food and culture from Russia and the former Soviet republic of Georgia (e.g., The Georgian Feast, LJ 3/15/93), Goldstein now turns to other cold climates, presenting a unique collection of comforting cold-weather dishes from Scandinavia, Turkey, and countries in between, along with those from her favorite Russia and Georgia. Some of the dishes are hearty and simple, but others are sophisticated and exotic. Goldstein is a Russian professor at Williams College, and her background in literature and cultural history is evident in the thoughtful essays, such as "Tolstoy's Table" and "Celebrations of Light," that appear throughout the book. Like Goldstein, Kochilas, author of the well-regarded The Food and Wine of Greece (LJ 11/15/90), is as interested in a country's culture as in its recipes. The headnotes for her vibrant, flavorful recipes include lots of background on her native country, and her introductory Pantry section is as much an essay on Greece's culinary history as it is a guide to ingredients. Neither of these books should be limited in appeal to vegetariansboth are more vegetable cookbooks than vegetarian diet books. Both are recommended for most collections.

    Great!!!!

    If you like greek food this is one of the best that deviates from classic greek cuisine. It is interesting to see an entirely vegetarian greek meal. I absolutely loved this book and would recommend it and any of Diane Kochilas's other books. A must have for any kitchen!!
