When we started compiling our book we took into consideration that most people going to work and don't have much time for long and complicated preparations. We have therefore selected, over 60 basic Greek recipes, which are quick to prepare and cook. Take a look at the "Recipe of the Day", where daily we post a different recipe and we hope that you will be tempted to try them out and enjoy! In our book, of course we have also included recipes that require more time to prepare, for that special Sunday lunch, because we want you to enjoy cooking a full range of Greek food. Remember, it is the various spices used by the Greeks that make their food so delicious, especially the herb Oregano and the unique 'féta' cheese.

Many experts said, that Greek people have some of the lowest rates of diet-linked diseases and very long life expectancy. Traditional Greek cooking is a naturally low-fat, healthy, satisfying cuisine and in our Greek Home Cookery book we share these secrets with you.
