friederike from Berlin,

I only bought this book after the challenge (ie. after reading all those enthusiast recipe reviews!), and I'm glad I bought it. Most recipes are really good, and very, very similar to the food we had in Greece, and some of them are already a fixed part of my repertoire. A great addition to my already overflowing shelf!

This book will bring you on both a culinary and a cultural journey through Greece. I love the stories from the author about living on Santorini, and her interactions with the locals. The recipes cover a broad range of Greek cooking -- not just those things we know about from Greek restaurants. Although not every recipe worked perfectly, it is a delightful book, and one that I'm very likely to buy for my own personal library.

Favorites of my family include the little herbed meatballs, the Greek salad, the Walnut cake, and the rice pudding.
