Vefa's Kitchen is the first truly comprehensive bible of Greek food in English. Rapidly increasing in popularity, Greek food is simple to prepare, healthy and delicious, and, more than most other cuisines, bears all the hallmarks of the rich cultural history of the land and sea from which it is drawn. It is the original Mediterranean cuisine, where olive oil, bread, wine, figs, grapes and cheese have been staples since the beginnings of Western civilization. With hundreds of simple recipes by Vefa Alexiadou, the authoritative grand dame of Greek cookery, the book also includes information on regional specialities, local ingredients and the religious and historical significance of the dishes, and is illustrated with 230 colour photographs. Vefa's Kitchen is the definitive work on the rich and fascinating cooking of modern Greece.

Contents
Introductory chapters on the history of Greek cuisine, the differences between regional cooking styles, descriptions of Greek ingredients such as herbs, cheeses and wines, and a detailed explanation of the many dishes associated with the Greek religious calendar. More than 700 recipes divided into chapters on mezedes, meat dishes, fish and shellfish, vegetables, cheese and dairy products, dips, filo pies, pulses, soups, sauces, breads and cookies, jams, sweets and cakes. Each chapter has an introduction with general cooking tips, preparation advice and further history of the dishes.
