Not what I thought it would be. I enjoy travel memoirs but this wasn't as good as "Under the Tuscan Sun" or even Ewan MacGregor's motorcycle epics.
This is a memoir of a man, Tom Stone, pursuing his dreams on a Greek island. In this odyssy, he fall in love with "a place, a woman and a dream." A delightful yet bittersweet story. The last chapter of the book features Tom's delicious recipes, including his "ulimate moussaka!"
Funny light hearted book about a couple who meet in Greece and set out to run a small restaurant. A good read for summer.
Travel with Tom Stone to the beautiful isle of Patmos, Greece. Stone's orginal quest was to complete a novel on the isle of Patmos. With his novel sold & marrying his beautiful wife of French descent, the two return to Patmos from Crete a few years later. Stone's dream of cooking in a taverna for a summer becomes reality. Stone works with a Greek friend in a partnership, cooking in the taverna for a summer filled with long hours, experiening the Greek way of doing & living. Stone's story is one of love, adventure, challenge, even disappointment along the way. A great, quick read.
