Best Greek cookbook?   Go to last post Go to last unread
#1 Posted : Saturday, August 13, 2022 9:18:48 PM(UTC)
Hi there! I love Greek food and have some Mediterranean-ish cookbooks , but would love a great Greek cookbook. I don’t eat meat but I do eat fish so would prefer a book with lots of seafood recipes rather than pure veg, but if there’s a vegetarian book you love I’d welcome that as well. I’d also like something that’s not overly complicated—I’m a pretty able cook, but I’d prefer a book with recipes that can be weeknight fare rather than a Sunday feast. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Under the Olive Tree is quite popular and very good. I personally like Food From Many Greek Kitchens by Tessa Kiros but then I'm fond of nearly all her works. The best recipes, however, come from my late mother-in-law, raised in Greece with a Greek father and a French mother.

I am vegetarian, and love Diane Kochilas's books. She has one called The Greek Vegetarian.

Look at The Complete Book of Greek Cooking put out by the recipe club of Saint Paul's Greek Orthodox Cathedral. My wife's Yaya went there so I know the recipes are authentic.

I like to recommend a book published in 2009, Vefa's Kitchen, has lots of seafood recipes. No kindle.  Another one by the same author later published in 2017 titled Greece, the Cookbook is a good choice.

Rinshin - those two books by Vefa Alexiadou are actually the same book.
