Culinaria Greece is pretty amazing. Many, many photographs. A lot of history. Fine recipes. It looks (as all Culinaria books do) like coffee table food porn but there's actually a lot of substance to these books, even if they are an impractical size for the kitchen.
I'm wondering if the book (from the congregation in New York) is The Complete Book of Greek Cooking. It's really very good.
I love Greek Cooking For The Gods a lot. It's pretty dog-eared.
Using tags for my cook books makes this looking up books SO MUCH EASIER!!! :)
I saw the Culinaria Greece in California on sale for 9.95, but I passed as it is really not the area where I collect. I think we also have the Greek Cooking for the Gods. My husband is the Grecophile, so that's why I'm less certain about what we have in this area.
I have 14 Greek cookbooks and like them all but the other two I would highly recommend are:
Olive & Caper by Susanna Hoffman, and
Food of Greece by Vilma Chantiles
Argonut (as you can see I am a bit crazy about Greece)
Instead I like very much the stories and backgrounds in Kreetalainen keittokirja of Merja Tuominen-Gialitaki. Unfortunately that book is out of print.
The Greek cookbook I'd been trying to remember in California is: The Art of Greek Cookery Based on the Grecian Gourmet, from The Women of St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church Hempstead, NY. I did find it again when I was out there recently and have enjoyed it immensely
At least this one may be a bit easier to acquire. ;)
I am trying to find out about Anne Thehorous' books. According to Amazon UK, she wrote a book called Cooking the Greek Way, and another called Cooking and baking the Greek Way. I don't know whether they are UK and USA editions. I have Cooking the Greek Way, and just love it, and I was thinking about finding out more about the other title. Would be grateful for any pointers, Thanks.
