Publishers Text

Here, Kochilas will marry lore to lesson and recipe to interview: we'll meet a 101-year-old weaver - the best on the island - and taste the combinations of herbs that he cooks with and that he believes give him life. We'll learn about the life-giving benefits of delicious salads both raw and cooked, the gorgeous breads and savory pies that are a part of every meal, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, and the seafood that is at the root of the Ikarian culinary culture. Filled with mouthwatering recipes and remarkable stories, this book will introduce many people to food as life, as only the Ikarians know it.
