Savour the Sun on your Plate!
What characterises Greek cuisine more than anything is the joy of sharing delicious food. My Greek Meze is a collection of the tastiest and best known meze recipes that we enjoy in Greece, written by the queen of mezedes, Eleni Psyhouli.
This cookbook is in many ways like a portrait of Greece. It has the aroma of the sun, the carefree vibe of holidays, the smile of the islands, the wisdom and taste of tradition, the scent of ouzo, the colour of the grapevine. It is a book that will help you to cook at home –in the heart of winter– your beloved memories of the Greek summer.
In its pages you will find 65 simple recipes, which have stood the test of time and remain an essential part of Greek tradition, made with everyday ingredients that you can find anywhere. You don’t need to spend much time in the kitchen to create the finest meze. This book will guide you through every stage, giving you tips and alternative solutions to make –in a few easy steps– mezedes of the Aegean, mezedes of the mountains, exactly as we enjoy them in every corner of Greece. The secret to their success is, in a nutshell, the love you put into their preparation.
So, invite Greek tradition to your table, say “yes” to the joy of coming together over a carafe of ouzo, and immerse yourself in the splendour concealed in a small meze dish.
To your very good health!
