Moussaka, grilled fish, and feta salad with olives--that's it for Greek food, right? Wrong, as abundantly proved by Diane Kochilas's masterful The Glorious Foods of Greece For over 10 years, Kochilas investigаэвывated the vast wealth of Greek cooking, traveling to its islands, cities, mountains, and villages and talking to cooks, bakers, fisherman, farmers, and cheese makers She listened astutely, and the result is not only hundreds of authentic recipes, but a definitive culinблисмary guide Following an introduction in which Kochilas details, among other fascinating information, the nature of each region's cuisine (Rooumali and Epirus are shepherds' domains, she writes, "where the reigning food is pita, as in savory pie, hundreds of them"), she then offers chapter-by-chapter observations with straightforward recipes These range from mezze (appetizers) and soups to breads, main dishes, sweets, and drinks From the olive country of Peloponnesus, бселэfor example, readers are offered the likes of Roast Leg of Lamb with Wine, Garlic, Allspice, and Cheese The Italian-influenced Ionian islands provide Chicken Stewed in Fragrant Tomato Sauce with Thick Pasta, among other dishes Snd from Macedonia and Thrace come such fare as Roasted Potato Salad with Hot Pepper and Mint, and Leek and Yogurt Pie Throughout, Kochilas also provides interesting sidebars (The Sardines of Lesvos, for example, profiles this local treasure known for its sweetness), ingredient sketches, and preparation suggestions A section that explores cooking techniques and a useful source list concludes the book, which is a tribute to a widely undiscovered cuisine and the author's steady yet exuberant powers of investigation --Arthur Boehm 1ST edition Автор Диана Кочилас Diane Kochilas.
