Product Description

Item No. 008481

By Katerina Katsarka Whitley

Around a Greek Table explores the intriciacies of Greek cooking and makes these once-mysterious recipes both understandable and possible, and organizes 100 unique recipes around the Eastern Church's yearly seasons. The book also delves deep into tales of Greek life with intimate and historical essays exploring the ancient stories that are told around Greek tables in the honored tradition of combining myths with food.

Kefi, loosely translated, is the Greek sense of joy and is often found around the dinner table during large and boisterous family meals of spanakopita, keftedes (Greek meatballs), and much, much more. Largely considered a bit of a mystery to Americans, Greek cooking is far more expansive than simply prepping up a few gyro sandwiches and Greek salads. There is an earthiness about Greek cooking, an amalgam of many historic influences. Lighter than southern Italian, much less pretentious than French, much more refined than Middle Eastern, Greek cuisine at its best is aromatic, tasty, and satisfying.

 About the Author: Katerina Katsarka Whitley was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, and studied in the U.S. The Greek gift of story-telling featured large in her upbringing so it was inevitable that she would devote herself to writing and drama. A teacher and musician, she now devotes herself to writing books. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina.
