4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but doesn't have a recipe for baklava. Dec 28 2003
By A Customer
I got this cookbook for Christmas, and I'm used to French cooking. This is a great cookbook, but it doesn't have a recipe for baklava. Some things are sort of farfetched for Americans to eat, but this is a very easy-to-follow cookbook with illustrations and authentic Greek recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is *real* Greek food Dec 26 2000
By A Customer
I'm a Greek born and bred, and a keen foodie. Now I live in London, and I always recommend this book to my English friends. Let me tell you, not only do these recipes represent authentic Greek food, but they work, too! Vefa has a degree in chemistry and that comes across in her methodical instructions. The photos are also quite appetising! Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars vefa's cookbooks May 7 2000
By A Customer
I am a Greek who recently moved to the US, and Vefa's books show the very best of today's Grrek cuisine. My mother in Greece has all her books, they're just the most authentic ones on the market. I hope the rest of them become available soon. Anna Tsirka, MD
