"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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Greek Cook Book! For years I have been looking for a Greek Food cook book that was similar to my grandmothers recipes. I'm delighted that I came across this book.  Every member of my family had bought this book and are thrilled with the result of the recipes. I 100% recommend this book to anyone, Greek or non-Greek, who is looking for authentic Greek food recipes.

Read from the Book
