Greek Comfort Food cookbook by Akis Petretzikis (English)
This book (personally signed by Akis) talks about the magic hiding in a mother’s dish! How? Through 260 recipes of Greek, traditional… homemade cuisine that compose one of the most complete cookbooks written in English, which comes to answer the question “what to cook today?” in the best possible way!
Greek cuisine is famous throughout the world, not only for its unique flavours and high nutritional value, but also for the magic that comes with it; the magic that comes from how it is prepared and how it is eaten. Because in Greece, food is not just a necessity and is much more than a pleasure. It is the warmth of the home-cooked meals that were always waiting for you when you were a child. It is the care of a mother who still wants to look after you, giving you time to rest while she busies herself in the kitchen. It is friends, celebration or even comfort during life’s difficult moments.
In Greece, above all else, food means sharing; it means gathering together around a table, talking, laughing, taking pleasure in the food and one another’s company. This book was written for anyone who wants to treat themselves, their family or their friends to the magic of Greek cuisine.
Here you will find 260 recipes inspired by traditional Greek home cooking, with step-by-step instructions, comments and explanations, all in a single comprehensive book that will help you learn the secrets of Greek cuisine in the most effective way possible.
