Seller Comments:

New book, small rip to back coverFood, culture, celebration, and memory are inexorably tied together inside Tessa Kiros's Food from Many Greek Kitchens. As the follow-up to her best-selling Venezia and Falling Cloudberries, Food from Many Greek Kitchens explores Kiros's Greek-Cypriot heritage and takes readers on a colorful journey into the Greek kitchens of her friends and family as she catalogs the traditional foods for fasting, festivals, and feast days. Recipes like Vassilopitta New Year Wish Cake, Lamb in a Flowerpot with Dill and Red Wine, Yamopilafo Wedding Rice, and Easter Soup are accompanied by short introductions that explain each dish's cultural significance. In addition, lavish full-color photographs take readers on a tour from the local Mediterranean fishmongers and markets into Greek family homes and kitchens to experience the best in authentic Greek cooking.

From the Publisher

"In Greece, everyone has a vasilopita (cake) at New Year. The wonderful thing about this cake is that a flouri (coin) is added before baking. If you''re lucky enough to get the piece with the coin, you''ll be blessed for the year. Don''t you love that sense of celebration the Greeks have?"

No one captures the spirit and soul of a place quite like Tessa Kiros. Her bestselling cookbooks Twelve, Postcards from Portugal, and Venezia took her global audience of readers-keen cooks and armchair travellers alike-on magical journeys through Tuscany, Portugal, and Venice respectively. So who better than Greek-Cypriot Tessa to take you on a colourful journey into the Greek kitchens of her friends and family? Accompany her as she presents the traditional Hellenic foods for fasting, festivals, and feast days in her own enchanting way.
