Greek Cuisine Jan 10, 2007
My husband is Greek,and really loves this book! Says it's the "real thing"
Yiayia Vasiliki would have approved of Vefa!!! Jan 5, 2006
I received this gift from my Husband's Aunt. They are both American Bred and Born. I am 100% Greek. I have always cooked Greek, but never had recipes, I cook by smell (wierd, I know). BUT this cook books is the BEST! I have heard of Vefa and saw her shows while in Greece. She is very informative in a simple sort of way. She does NOT keeping you guessing about what to do. She is precise and has extended my menu list greatly. Thank You Vefa for bringing my Yiayia into my kitchen as I do feel her presence even more with your help. You are just what I needed to start off my New year 2006. Chronnia Polla!!!
Great, but doesn't have a recipe for baklava. Dec 28, 2003
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!
Inspiring Book! Jul 6, 2002
I found this book to be easy to cook with and have used it for many receipes. The food tastes just like it is from Greece. The pictures are inspirational and make your mouth water.
This is *real* Greek food Dec 26, 2000
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.
