I have several Greek cookbooks but Annie's (I can call her that since she was my first cousin) is the most detailed I own. I have made some minor changes to some of her recipes to suit my own tastes. In the baklava recipe, for instance, I only use 1.5 lbs of walnuts and one lb pecans. In making the syrup, I add six cloves instead of two (makes it a bit spicier) to the syrup, and have reduced the total amount of sugar in the recipe to 3.5 cups. I also like to sprinkle a little cognac over the finished product after the syrup has been added (provides a bit of additional flavor).Her recipe for 'Brandied chicken with cream' (which I call 'Drunken chicken') is awesome; however, her "lamb with orzo" suggests too much baking; I've cut her baking times in half and the lamb comes out more moist and, therefore tastier.Nik Mavrotheris
I have relied on this book for over 25 years. I always receive compliments from the "old Greeks" in my family about my Greek cooking - saying I cook just like my great-grandmother and aunt (the highest compliment there is in my family). Many of the tips my aunt taught me are in this book. I will definatly pass it down to my daughter.
I purchased several of these as used books because they aren't in print anymore. As an American "Greek", I really must say that this is my go-to book for authentic recipies as I have given them to others in my family and try to pass down the delicious Greek food to others. I have not had a bad experience with any recipe. You have to try the Pastitisio. Fabulous.
I first got this book in 1979, after I married my very Greek husband. He went through it and marked all his favorites, I love to cook and have made them over and over all these years. My favorite cookbook fell apart yesterday while making Plaki and Spanakopita. I'm so happy to give the place of honor in my collection of Greek cookbooks and buy another. Thank you Anne!
