This is a really excellent Greek cookbook - in fact, one of the best. The recipes have been collected by a group of home cooks who are sharing their family recipes. Thus, the recipes are straightforward, clearly-written, include mostly easy-to-find ingredients (at least, I never came across anything I couldn't find in my grocery store), and have many tips on how to work with tricky ingredients such as phyllo and squid. This is not a "frou-frou" cookbook in that it doesn't have any fancy language or artsy photos - in fact, there isn't a single photo in the entire book, although there are some simple line drawings. This may be a drawback to some, and if you're completely unfamiliar with Greek cooking, you may not know how some of the dishes are supposed to look when finished. But in my opinion, if you really want to have some fantastic Greek home cooking, this is the cookbook for you!

The recipes sounded great, I just never got around to doing them! Apparently this is a very good Greek cookbook.
