Smashing Plates: Greek Flavours Redefined by Maria EliaRegular price $35.00 Save $-35.00
Greek cuisine has a long history―the first ever cookbook was written by Ancient Greek poet Archestratos in 320 BC―and now Maria Elia brings the traditional flavors and ingredients of Greece into the 21st century with her thoroughly modern take on classic dishes. This is not a book for traditionalists, but adventurers ready to explore exciting new flavor combinations and discover what Greek cuisine has to offer. The 120 recipes are a product of a summer spent cooking and experimenting at her father's tavern in the Troodos mountains of Cyprus. The villagers welcomed her into their homes, taught her new and old recipes, shared produce from their gardens and even tried to teach her Greek! She went shooting with her dad and gathered caper leaves for pickling.
