Gift of the Greek : 75 Authentic Recipes for the Mediterranean Diet - (Hardcover)
about this item
In The Gift of the Greek, you will find recipes for colorful, vibrant salads, delicious specialty breads, an array of dips for every occasion, and an abundance of desserts influenced by Greece’s geographical position as a checkpoint between the East and the West. Fragrant syrups, eastern spices, and heartwarming custards adorn the pages of this contemporary, yet traditional cookbook.
For generations the Greek diet was almost exclusively vegan, which is something that resulted from the country’s close relationship with religion and, subsequently, lent. This book is designed with the traditional Greek diet in mind, using a minimal amount of meat.
Eat your way to a healthy olive-oiled heart, and live as long as George, Yiota’s 99-year-old granddad!
