An excellent Greek cookbook! It has So many wonderful dishes that my Yiayia and m y mom use to make. I love how they refer to orthodox traditions. This is a good book to have for young adults just starting out.
Easy to make recipes with good directions. Suggestions for menus for holidays makes meal planning simple. The picture diagrams on how to cut and fold various pastry dishes easy to attempt if you have never made it before.
I bought this book recently b/c I love Greek food. So far I've only had the time to try two recipes -the moussaka & the baklava. Both were very, very good! The moussaka was not too hard to make except for the time involved to make each component (make the meat sauce, make the bechamel, roast the eggplant). The baklava, however, is time consuming due to all the puff pastry sheets you have to individually brush with butter. I'm sure it's just commonplace not just to this cookbook but the dessert itself. I'll just buy mine from now on! Overall, I recommend this book & look forward to trying more of its recipes. If they turn out to be just as good, I'll come back & give it five stars!
About once a year I need make something that is 'Greek', so I reach for this cookbook. (I got tired of borrowing the cookbook from friends so I bought my own and now between us we have 2). The recipes were collected from those used when the Greek church had a pot luck, so the recipes create generous servings. The recipes that I've made have been easy and tasty. Wide variety of recipes so if you need a recipe for a specific dish or are searching for a type of recipe it is probably in here.
I've tried several recipies and really enjoy this book. It also makes an excellent gift. The Ladies Hellenic Society contributed to this book so you know it's authentic. There is quite a variety of dishes, sides, sauces. I am pleased to have this book in my collection.
This is my second copy of this recipe book. My first copy was a little stained and torn up after about 15 years of use. I love pulling out this cookbook when I want to get creative in the kitchen.
This cookbook has good greek family recipes. Being half greek I can tell you these recipes turn out like grandmas. Good product and shipped ahead of schedule as always.
My favorite Greek cookbook, The one I grab first. Authentic, tasty dishes. I am of Greek descent and know good homemade, not restaurant quality food. Book is not too big and cumbersome
