The Foods of the Greek Islands: Cooking and Culture at the Crossroads of the Mediterranean

'“As much a travel book as any tourist guide . . . not just because of its lush pictures, but because it’s a real working guide to preparing the traditional dishes found all over Greece.” —Newsweek “In addition to a generous sampling of unusual dishes, Kremezi presents a detailed background on regional cuisine . . . The recipes are not overly complicated, and offer new ideas for familiar ingredients.” —USA Today “Gorgeous, authoritative.” —Atlantic Monthly “Full of treats and remarkably appetizing . . . There is splendid stuff here, particularly for vegetarians.” —The Times (London) "Kremezi brings historical perspective to each recipe." —People  "[The Foods of the Greek Islands] is the genuine item . . . It reads like a love letter to her native land...with it's tempting photos and recipes it's the next best thing to a cruise through the greek islands." —Time "The Julia Child Award-winning author returns with an equally engaging, personal take on the foods of Greece's many islands." —Publishers Weekly, starred review Aglaia Kremezi's new cookbook brings the flavors of the Mediterranean to tables everywhere. —Sheryl Julian and Julie Riven, The Boston Globe "An astonishing collection . . . by the doyenne of Greek food writers." —Food & Wine "I had to restrain myself from scrawling 'must try' beside yet another recipes in Aglaia Kremezi's Foods of the Greek Islands. In this book, her fourth, Kremezi could do for people who assume that Greek food involves little beyond moussaka and egg-lemon glop what Marcella Hazan did for people who thought Italian food was all veal marsala and lasagna. The author has combined her reportorial skills, scholarly interests and superb instincts as a cook who knows both American and Greek kitchens to produce recipes that are simple, direct yet exciting." —The New York Times Book Review'
