My Favorite Feature: Fantastic, magical, mesmerizing photos. This book is meant for being paged through at leisure. Drinking in the colors and the people and devouring the food and the architecture with your eyes.
(a few of the) Recipes Destined for my Kitchen: Hortopita (Wild Greens Pie), Hilopites (Homemade Noodles), Tsoureki (Braided Easter Bread), Saganaki (Fried Cheese- with or w/out Honey & Sesame), Melomarkarona (Honey Cakes), Loukoumi (Rose Delight), Pastelli (Sesame and Pistachio Snack), Melopita (Honey Cake)
My Thoughts/Review: This is the kind of book that I can gaze at with dreamy eyes for hours. I want it displayed on my coffee table for guests to enjoy. With an introduction to familiarize you with Greek letters/symbols and their pronunciations and meanings and a glossary of common Greek ingredients/food words, you'll be itching to turn the pages and feel your salivary glands begin to tingle. There is not one single thing that I do not love about this book. Grecian scenes, landscapes, people, and tablescapes. Recipes and photographs that transport you to another land. Unless, of course, you live in Greece. And if that's the case, color me jealous.
