Overview

The recipes in this cookbook are simple and proud. They are not complex, yet they are just as delicious, and impressive as those produced by some of today's hottest chefs.

We are the three Greek sisters that have been blessed with the warmest of families and the goodness of homemade Greek food throughout our lives. The recipes we have compiled in this book carry with them memories of travels to our parents' homeland, the nostalgia of growing up, and of talking and laughing around the security of our parents' kitchen table.

This is not the stuff of fast food Greek restaurants that has come to characterize Greek food in the minds of many. We have selected over 100 recipes that we believe will become a part of your regular repertoire once you have tried them. You may also be surprised to discover that over half of the recipes in this book are vegetarian. This is real Greek cooking.

This book is a must-have on your cookbook shelf. The recipes are easy and simply yummy. It has beautiful photographs and the lay-out is clean and easy to follow. I wish this book was around many, many years ago when I first met my Greek husband!

This is the best Greek cookbook out there. Super easy and delicious recipes with great mouth-watering photographs for every dish. I also love the short stories that have inspired the food. I use this everyday and am never disappointed. A must-have. I have given this to all my friends who love it just as much as I do.
