More than 100 Greek recipes
Greek dishes have influenced other cultures for thousands of years. The dishes and preparation are simple; the taste, divine. In My Greek Family Table, Maria Benardis describes her summers of cooking at her grandmother’s elbow on the Greek island of Psara, and places an emphasis on eating for health and well-being. The foods of ancient Greece are as relevant—and delicious—as ever, showcased in recipes such as:
- Barley and Pomegranate Salad
- Chicken with Herbed Feta Crust
- Lamb with Avgolemono (egg and lemon sauce)
- Hippocrates’ Spiced Wine
Written with passion and beautifully photographed, My Greek Family Table is a personal invitation to experience all the depth and flavor of Greek cooking and the wonderful spirit of kerasma—the offering of food to those we love. The book also includes ancient Greek healing wisdom from Hippocrates and other ancient Greek healers.
Healthy eating and a healthy mind were the two key components practiced by the ancient Greeks to ensure healthy living and longevity – “Let medicine be thy food and food thy medicine”. The natural force within each of us is the greatest healer of disease” Hippocrates. Many people during these times lived up to the age of 200 years old a rare occurrence now days. We all have the potential to live long and healthy lives and this book will provide you with the know-how.
