The Gift Of The Greek (eBook)
75 Authentic Recipes For The Mediterranean Diet
de Yiota Giannakopoulou
Sobre o livro
A rustic but modern cookbook, filled with traditional recipes passed down through several generations of Greek and Mediterranean cooks.
With a minimalist feel and an emphasis on the use of fresh ingredients, limited use of processed raw ingredients, and a generous dose of olive oil in almost every dish, this is a cookbook that moves focus away from weight management enthusiasts, toward the more health-conscious foodie.
InThe Gift of the Greek, you will find recipes for colorful, vibrant salads, delicious specialty breads, an array of dips for every occasion, and an abundance of desserts influenced by Greeces geographical position as a checkpoint between the East and the West. Fragrant syrups, eastern spices, and heartwarming custards adorn the pages of this contemporary, yet traditional cookbook.
For generations the Greek diet was almost exclusively vegan, which is something that resulted from the countrys close relationship with religion and, subsequently, lent. This book is designed with the traditional Greek diet in mind, using a minimal amount of meat.
Eat your way to a healthy olive-oiled heart, and live as long as George, Yiotas 99-year-old granddad!
