Vefa's Kitchen is the first truly comprehensive bible of Greek food in English. Rapidly increasing in popularity, Greek cuisine is simple to prepare, healthy and delicious, and, more than most other cuisines, bears all the hallmarks of the rich cultural history of the land and sea from which it is are drawn. It is the original Mediterranean cuisine, where olive oil, figs, grapes, garlic, bread, wine and cheese have been staples since the beginnings of Western civilization.

With over 1,000 simple recipes by Vefa Alexiadou, the authoritative grand dame of Greek cookery, the book includes information on regional specialities, local ingredients and the religious and historical significance of the dishes, and is illustrated with 200 colour photographs.

Vefa's Kitchen is the definitive work on the rich and fascinating cooking of modern Greece.
