  • Spinach pies (Spanokopita)

    • tgirlza on May 13, 2014

      Made as one large pie and worked perfectly. Also had only freeze-dried dill, and tasted fine. Would use again in a pinch.

Reviews about this book

  • PBS

    While it’s beautifully put together — the color palette is based on the colors of the ocean...I would have traded in about half of the beauty for a recognizable organizing principle.

    There are as many mesmerizing slice of life/travelogue photographs as recipe photos. Even the food shots have wonderfully distracting backgrounds or objects accompanying them.

    ...this is an authentic, traditional, and gorgeous Greek cookbook.

Publishers Text

"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 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, Piri Piri Starfish and Venezia took her global audience of readers, keen cooks and armchair travellers 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, cataloguing the traditional foods for fasting, festivals and feast days in her own enchanting way.
