Corfu Cooking: Family Recipes and Stories from the Greek Island of Corfu

£9.99

Product description

The author has enlivened her recipe collection with sixteen stories - many related to the books recipes - from her childhood in Corfu. The vignettes provide heartwarming glimpses into the lives of her family and their friends, and touch on the occupation of the island by the Italians and Germans in WWII.

From the Author:-
The idea for my cookbook began when I discovered four little red notebooks that contained all of my mother's recipes. Some of the recipes are unique and to my knowledge are not found in any other Greek cookbook. Most of the recipes are my mother's. A certain number of recipes are indigenous to Corfu. Others are traditional Greek recipes and still others are my own. The book is comprised of approximately 160 recipes that are incorporated into a dozen categories beginning with appetisers and concluding with desserts. Throughout the book, I have included personal stories directly or indirectly related to the various categories. In essence, this cookbook is a tribute to my mother, Maria. She was the motivating force for encouraging me to explore the world of cooking.

Illustrations by John Pyle.

CONDITION: Small tear to bottom corner of DJ and mild foxing on top edge of pages otherwise clean and bright internally with no inscriptions or notations.
