About the Author
Praise For The Country Cooking of Greece…
"Most of what I always knew about Greek food was learned from my Mom and Yiayia. What makes Diane and her books so special is she has given me and many Greek Americans a true understanding of not only the amazing food throughout Greece but the traditions and stories that come with them. This book is like being in the kitchen with a 100 yiayias! Thank you, Diane, for all you have done for this magnificent cuisine."- Michael Symon , James Beard award-winning chef, restaurateur, and author
"Diane has, once again, proven why she is the world's leading cookbook authority on traditional Greek cookery." - Michael Psilakis, chef, founder and director of KEFI, FishTag, and MP Taverna
"Diane Kochilas' knowledge of Greek cuisine and culture is encyclopedic and effusive and it shines forth in this great new book. She teaches us about the undiscovered treasures of the Greek table - artisan vinegar, regional spices, healthy greens - and the photography brings the countryside, the food, and its producers to life. It's a culinary tour through the country's immense wealth of country dishes, where the heart and soul of Greece still resides, and I loved that this book is filled with recipes I have never seen before. Country Cooking of Greece will inspire me in the kitchen for years." - Cat Cora, chef, restaurateur, and television star
