Review

'lovely and well written ... Phaidon has produced the authoritative tome on Greek cookery.' The Bookseller 'Greek cookbook writer, TV presenter and chef Vefa Alexiadou has collected hundreds of recipes from all over Greece' The Observer 'bulges with traditional recipes collected from all over Greece.' The Daily Telegraph magazine 'bound to become a contemporary classic ... will have you whipping up moussaka in no time.' Thomas Cook magazine 'the book's a stunner, beautifully designed, and should give hours of pleasure of page-flicking joy and cooking pleasure to anyone who appreciates real Greek food.' Time Out

This book is extraordinary. When I first recieved my copy in the mail, it took me three days just to skim through it. I wanted to stop and read everything! The recipes are well laid out, the ingredients are listed completely and thought is given to what other things the recipe would go well with. As well, the book has an excellent introduction to Greek food, an excellent glossary and, very importantly, is very well indexed. It also contains some beautiful photographs. This will probably be the only Greek cookbook I will ever buy. It's that good.

My family is from Greece and in comparing these recipes to my moms and my grandmothers...they are the most authentic recipes I have ever found.

Let me begin with how amazing everything turns out! I also love that she goes beyond the basic/popular Greek cuisine and includes recipes from Greece that are less common. This however leads to the problem that because there are so many recipes (there must be at least 500), there are no pictures and everything is so crammed together. In spite of this, I still give it 5 stars because the recipes are so darn delicious! I loved it so much I have bought it as a gift for many friends and family.

If you could only pick only one Greek cookbook this is the one you should pick. There are plenty of good ones out there and some extremely good ones. But, to me, this is the one. Get it!
