Overview

Famed chef Theodore Kyriakou and Glenfiddich Restaurant Writer of the Year award-winner Charles Campion bring Greek food in all its glory to life. The recipes in this lusciously designed cookbook come from across Greece-the cities, the countryside, and the sea-and the offerings range from familiar grilled lamb and stuffed vine leaves to more exotic fare, such as eggs served with nettles and cheese.
For Kyriakou, an Athenian, these dishes are about more than food for the stomach; they're also about food for the soul, and they evoke the experience of growing up in his beautiful and rugged native country. Anecdotes, myths, and vivid descriptions provide context for these recipes, and the ingredients, meals, and scenery are beautifully illustrated by Jason Lowe's stunning color photographs.
