5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Just fun to read!, 11.21.2015
Reviewer: mozS (Syracuse, Indiana)

Bought this book on a whim (I just like cookbooks)not realizing that it was such a large comprehensive cookbook. The author first describes 12 geographic regions of Greece and the foods and cuisines found in them. Most of the 21 sections {Soups, Salads, Vegetables, Legumes (Pulses) and Rice, Pasta, Fish, Shellfish (Seafood), Poultry, Pork, Beef, Veal, and Ground (Minced) Meat, Lamb, Game, Pies, Bread, Cookies (Biscuits), Cakes, Syrup Pastries, Candies (Sweets) and Preserves, Menus from Celebrated Greek Chefs} begin with several paragraphs of introduction followed by General instructions for that section. The photographs are well done, and while I would like one for every recipe, the instructions in the recipes make most things (of the ones I have perused) clear. Besides being clearly written and easy to read, there is also three "bible" style ribbon book-marks that I find helpful. 'Joy of Cooking' has been and probably always will be my go to authority in the kitchen but 'Vefa's Kitchen' promises to add some variety and fun.

Reviewer: Agnes Ann Bouwense (Portland, OR)

This is an amazing cookbook! However, because all the recipes are English titled and reference, finding a recipe using the Greek is impossible. It would be wonderful if you could use both English and Greek as means of finding recipes. My son, for whom I purchased this book, worked in a Greek restaurant in Phoenix, AZ. He was very excited when he received the book, but when he was unable to use the index to find the Greek recipes he knew, he was disappointed. Through indepth searching and lots of time spent, he was able to find similar recipes. An example of this is recipes for spanikopita. The closest thing he found was spinach, cheese pie, not really the same, but similar enough that we were able to use it with modifications.
