The Foods of the Greek Islands

Cooking and Culture at the Crossroads of the Mediterranean

View: 7385

This New York Times Notable Book is “a real working guide to preparing the traditional dishes found all over Greece” (Newsweek). Stretching from the shores of Turkey to the Ionian Sea east of Italy, the Greek islands have been the crossroads of the Mediterranean since the time of Homer. Over the centuries, Phoenicians, Athenians, Macedonians, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Ottoman Turks, and Italians have ruled the islands, putting their distinctive stamp on the food. Aglaia Kremezi, a frequent contributor to Gourmet and an international authority on Greek food, spent eight years collecting the fresh, uncomplicated recipes of the local women, fishermen, bakers, and farmers. Like all Mediterranean food, these dishes are light and healthful, simple but never plain, and make extensive use of seasonal produce, fresh herbs, and fish. Passed from generation to generation by word of mouth, most have never before been written down. All translate easily to the American home kitchen: Tomato Patties from Santorini; Spaghetti with Lobster from Kithira; Braised Lamb with Artichokes from Chios; Greens and Potato Stew from Crete; Spinach, Leek, and Fennel Pie from Skopelos; Rolled Baklava from Kos. Illustrated throughout with color photographs of the islanders preparing their specialties, and filled with stories of island history and customs, The Foods of the Greek Islands is for all cooks and travelers who want to experience this diverse and deeply rooted cuisine firsthand. “The author has combined her reportorial skills, scholarly interests and superb instincts as a cook who knows both American and Greek kitchens to produce recipes that are simple, direct yet exciting.” —The New York Times Book Review

Here are the dishes your mother used to make, from the cookbook your grandmother brought over from the old country. Crown's Classic Cookbook series features a collection of the world's best-loved foreign cookbooks, specially adapted for use in American kitchens. Authentic and comprehensive, these reasonably priced books are a welcome addition to the culinary library of any cook. Jewish Cookery by Leah H. Leonard The classic book on Jewish cuisine, featuring traditional recipes for gefulte fish, kreplach, knishes, challah, and kugel, as well as guidelines for keeping a kosher kitchen and menus for holiday meals. The Finnish Cookbook by Beatrice A. Ojakangas The first cookbook devoted to introducing Finland's fascinating but little known cuisine to America. Including recipes for Sour Rye Bread, Fish in a Crust, Finnish Smorgasbord, and Bishop's Pepper Cookies. German Cookery by Elizabeth Schuler Germany's best-selling cookbook adapted for American kitchens. Containing recipes for all the German favorites such as Wiener Schnitzel, Sauerbraten, Spatzle, and Apple Strudel. The Greek Cookbook is a translation and adaptation of Greece's best-selling cookbook, containing 500 of its choicest recipes. Yet all of these -- many of them exotic by American standards -- use American measurements and can be easily prepared from ingredients readily available to the American cook. Phyllo, that versatile pastry used as the basis for many Greek entrees and appetizers as well as desserts, appears here in many delectable forms. Try the baklava with honey syrup, or Copenhagen (the pastry named for the Greek king who was originally a Danish prince). You'll find excellent recipes too for the famed Greek dolmathes (rolled grape leaves) and yemista (stuffed vegetable preparations such as stuffed artichokes ). You might prefer to sample a baked specialty like moussaka or one of the au gratins made with lamb, eggplant, or squash. Having visitors? Welcome them as the Greeks do, with a choice of glykos or spoon sweets -- perhaps eggplant, or rose petal, or apricot. For a cocktail party, serve any of the marvelous canapes or hot hors d'oeuvres like taramosalata (pureed roe salad) and piroski (dumplings). And formal entertaining takes on a new exotic twist when you serve lamb on a spit or an octopus main course. The Greek Cookbook also includes a glossary explaining all Greek culinary terms as well as examples of typical Greek menus. For the experienced cook who wants to prepare an authentic Greek banquet or the novice who wants to spice up an ordinary meal with a Greek specialty, The Greek Cookbook is indispensable.

A Mediterranean Feast

The Story Of The Birth Of The Celebrated Cuisines Of The Mediterranean, From The Merchants Of Venice To The Barbary Corsairs, With More Than 500 Recip

Author: Clifford A. Wright

A groundbreaking culinary work of extraordinary depth and scope that spans more than one thousand years of history, A Mediterranean Feast tells the sweeping story of the birth of the venerated and diverse cuisines of the Mediterranean. Author Clifford A. Wright weaves together historical and culinary strands from Moorish Spain to North Africa, from coastal France to the Balearic Islands, from Sicily and the kingdoms of Italy to Greece, the Balkan coast, Turkey, and the Near East. The evolution of these cuisines is not simply the story of farming, herding, and fishing; rather, the story encompasses wars and plagues, political intrigue and pirates, the Silk Road and the discovery of the New World, the rise of capitalism and the birth of city-states, the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, and the obsession with spices. The ebb and flow of empires, the movement of populations from country to city, and religion have all played a determining role in making each of these cuisines unique. In A Mediterranean Feast, Wright also shows how the cuisines of the Mediterranean have been indelibly stamped with the uncompromising geography and climate of the area and a past marked by both unrelenting poverty and outrageous wealth. The book's more than five hundred contemporary recipes (which have been adapted for today's kitchen) are the end point of centuries of evolution and show the full range of culinary ingenuity and indulgence, from the peasant kitchen to the merchant pantry. They also illustrate the migration of local culinary predilections, tastes for food and methods of preparation carried from home to new lands and back by conquerors, seafarers, soldiers, merchants, and religious pilgrims. A Mediterranean Feast includes fourteen original maps of the contemporary and historical Mediterranean, a guide to the Mediterranean pantry, food products resources, a complete bibliography, and a recipe and general index, in addition to a pronunciation key. An astonishing accomplishment of culinary and historical research and detective work in eight languages, A Mediterranean Feast is required--and intriguing--reading for any cook, armchair or otherwise.

Ikaria

Lessons on Food, Life, and Longevity from the Greek Island Where People Forget to Die

Author: Diane Kochilas

Publisher: Rodale Books

ISBN: 1623362962

Category: Cooking

Page: 320

View: 6655

The remote and lush island of Ikaria in the northeastern Aegean is home to one of the longest-living populations on the planet, making it a "blue zone." Much of this has been attributed to Ikaria's stress-free lifestyle and Mediterranean diet--daily naps, frequent sex, a little fish and meat, free-flowing wine, mindless exercise like walking and gardening, hyper-local food, strong friendships, and a deep-rooted disregard for the clock. No one knows the Ikarian lifestyle better than Chef Diane Kochilas, who has spent much of her life on the island. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Kochilas's Ikaria is an introduction to the food-as-life philosophy and a culinary journey through luscious recipes, gorgeous photography, and captivating stories from locals. Capturing the true spirit of the island, Kochilas explains the importance of shared food, the health benefits of raw and cooked salads, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, the greens and herbal teas that are used in the kitchen and in the teapot as "medicine," and the nutritional wisdom inherent in the ingredients and recipes that have kept Ikarians healthy for so long. Ikaria is more than a cookbook. It's a portrait of the people who have achieved what so many of us yearn for: a fuller, more meaningful and joyful life, lived simply and nourished on real, delicious, seasonal foods that you can access anywhere.
