My dear friend Elias Mamalakis and University of Thessaly Professor Dimitris Kouretas, showcase in the pages of their quite absorbing book, the benefits of Greek cuisine, i.e., all that we need to know about cooking the Greek way and savoring delicious recipes tested for everyday meal preparation, while retaining all of the foods’ sensory characteristics intact.
This combination of scientific knowledge and experience makes the book stand out! The book begins with some useful information on the history, nutritional value, and beneficial properties of a variety of foods as verified by lab research. Next, the book debunks some common food myths established in the past, offers readers an understanding into some little-known food traits, and clarifies those food tips and hacks that help us make the most out of different foods. The book concludes with traditional Greek cuisine recipes.
A few words by the authors:
“Simply put, what we suggest is: keep your cooking seasonal! Your wallet, health, and taste buds will thank you for that! ″
“This book aims at contributing to the effort of benefiting as much as possible from the wholesomeness of Greek food staples and, of course, to become re-acquainted with things we had all but forgotten, those very same things that have to do with our children’s and our health.”
