My Greek Family Table - Maria Benardis

Hardcover.   Very good condition.   2009

Greek-Australian Maria Benardis welcomes you to her table to enjoy Greek food the way her family has always done.  In these 100 recipes, passed down the generations, you will find time-honoured classics such as moussaka and souvlakia, as well as modern adaptations of traditional dishes - spicy ouzo keftedes and filo pizza with lamb.

Alongside are the intimate tales of family life: an aunt learning to make Greek Easter bread in war-ravaged Kalamata; a generation of relatives arriving to make a new home in Australia, their suitcases bulging with their beloved ingredients; the author as a child keeping a secret vegie garden on the island of Psara.

My Greek Family Table is a personal invitation to experience all the depth and flavour of Greek food and the wonderful spirit of kerasma - the offering of food to those we love.
