The 165 recipes of Dora Parisi are for dishes cooked on Lesvos and throughout the north Aegean. They originated on the coastline of Asia Minor and were brought by refugees to the islands, where they blended with the local cuisine.
The recipes are described in detail so that even those unfamiliar with Greek cooking methods will have no difficulty in following them. The ingredients are those which would be found in any Greek kitchen - and which nowadays are available in Mediterranean food shops all over the world. The book will thus help readers prepare tasty and healthy traditional dishes with a minimum of fuss.
The book also gives a visual taste of the Aegean, with particular emphasis on Lesvos. Rare glimpses of the interiors of the island's mansions, traditional ceramics, embroidery, paintings by Theofilos, landscapes - all these illustrations make scanning the pages of the book (not to mention cooking the dishes) a fascinating visual journey.
With 150 colour photographs by Dimitris Talianis and Vasilis Tsonis.
