200 recipes from Greek cookery, the most
characteristic and perhaps the most exemplary
expression of the celebrated and well-known
Mediterranean Diet. Traditional dishes based on
the purest ingredients from the Greek countryside
constitute and propound a system of nutrition
which is ideal for the ensuring of good health
and longevity. Fresh vegetables, wild greens,
pulses, fish, local meat, pure dairy products and
fruit predominate on the Greek table, in combinations
which have remained invariable and
unchanged over the centuries. The basic ingredient
of these delicious dishes – excellent Greek
olive oil – dominates the recipes and contributes
decisively to the unique gustatory result. From
the more mountainous and colder regions to the
little coastal tavernas of the Aegean, deep ruby
wine, fiery ‘tsipouro’ (raki) and aromatic ouzo
accompany Greek mezedes, strengthening the
ties of friendship and sparking off unique celebrations
around the table.
Whether a festive celebration or an everyday
meal, the scene is always stolen by delicacies that
are tempting, fresh and redolent of the homely
fragrances of our childhood years.
