Review

Betty, Eleni & Samantha Bakopoulos are becoming the Greek food ambassadors in Canada. --Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, February 2010

"My teens couldn't get enough of these croquettes - tangy, yet hot and crispy." -- Susan Sampson --Toronto Star, March 2010

"It is, without question, the best Moussaka we’ve ever sampled." -- Brook Elliott --Chef Talk, June 2010

From the Inside Flap

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 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. In these pages, you will find dishes you may recognize such as Spanakopita and Souvlaki – but you will also discover Stifado; a braised rabbit dish, Pastitsio; a baked penne with a creamy cinnamon and Béchamel sauce and Avgolemmono; a chicken soup with a lemon and egg finish. We have selected over 100 recipes that we believe will become a part of your regular repertoire once you have tried them. Delicious and fulfilling dishes like our mom’s Lemon Chicken and Potatoes will surprise you with the simplicity of its ingredients. You may also be surprised to discover that over half of the recipes in this book are vegetarian. This is real Greek cooking.

The preparation of food in Greek culture is an expression of love. It says to those whom you prepare it for you are worth the effort. Like love, good food is comforting. For those preparing it, it is rewarding. For those who share in the feast, it is life affirming. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Greek cuisine! Jan. 26 2013
By Len
Format:Paperback
This is a beautifully presented cookbook. It includes the basic popular Greek recipes, but also includes some that are new and Greek inspired. In addition, it includes some wonderful photos of what each meal should look like in the end. This book would be great for a beginner who doesn't have much experience in the kitchen. The recipes always taste good and for the most part are simple and easy to follow. Some get a bit more challenging, but once you've gained some experience, they aren't too much of a challenge to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully simple, amazingly delicious. Sept. 26 2013
Format:Paperback
This cookbook is beautiful with a picture for every main recipe. There are a lot of Greek staples with clear instructions. The servings are large and are even better as leftovers. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can cook Greek! Sept. 14 2011
By Dana TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A few months ago, I was wandering around downtown Montreal when I came across the biggest Chapters/Indigo store I had ever seen. So, of course I went in. And then things kind of got surreal, the clerks were moving about the store with trays handing out small bowls of the best Greek salad I had ever tasted (and I know my Greek salad!) Finally someone pointed me to the book signing at the front of the store and I bought myself a signed copy of 'Three Sisters Around the Greek Table: A Cookbook' by (you'll never guess) three Greek sisters: Betty, Eleni and Samantha Bakopoulos.

Greek food is a huge weakness of mine but I have never been able to satisfactorily cook much of anything Greek. Believe it or not, just throwing lemon on some meat does not a good Greek dish make. Well, the first recipe I made from my new favorite cookbook was that Greek salad. And mine turned out just as good as the samples in the store! I will never use store bought Greek salad dressing again!! It was so easy and so amazingly delish.

We all know one good recipe does not a great cookbook make. So I tried more ... and more ... and got rave reviews from my family and friends. I'll admit I haven't tried every recipe in the book (I just can't make myself cook rabbit, no matter how good the recipe may be) but I have tried many of them. Guess what? With this book in hand, I can cook Greek!! Everything I have made has turned out very, very well. The recipes are simple and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. In case you are new to having ingredients on hand, there is a section on stocking your pantry the Greek way.

There are also menu ideas organized by season and occasion - including a couple of vegetarian menus.
