My Cookbooks

My Cookbooks

My cookbooks: “Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!” and “More Than A Greek Salad”, are available on all Amazon stores.

Both cookbooks focus on the Greek Cuisine and the Mediterranean Diet, with a large variety of dishes that can fully satisfy the gastronomic quests of both vegetarians and meat lovers.

My first Cookbook, Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, (in English) focuses on Cypriot Cuisine:

Cypriot cuisine is shaped by the island’s Mediterranean climate, geography, and history.

The majority of its recipes are based on Greek cuisine and the Mediterranean Diet, which is one of the healthiest in the world, using fresh, wholesome ingredients.

Cyprus’s strategic location in the Eastern Mediterranean, situated between the crossroads of three continents, had brought to the island many conquerors and thus its cuisine has evolved into an amalgamation of diverse tastes and textures, with an unmistakable mark that makes it undeniably Cypriot.

“Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!”  is sold IN PRINT on all AMAZON STORES.

It is also available in DIGITAL FORM through the AMAZON KINDLE.

The book in print with 150 recipes, has been expanded in its digital form, with over 260 of the best traditional Greek-Cypriot recipes and is divided in two Volumes.

Volume 1 includes all Savory Main Dishes, Mezedes, Side Dishes and Salads.

In Volume 2, you will find Breads, Bread products, Pites (pies), Snacks, Almyra (savory pastries), Traditional and Modern Desserts, Glyka tou koutaliou (fruit preserves), Marmalades and Jams, Drinks, etc.

If you prefer, you can buy each volume of the cookbook in PDF format separately, directly through me, to save it on your computer.  Each volume costs €6 but if you buy both volumes it is discounted to €10.

When you buy it through Paypal, I will send you the PDF immediately to your e-mail or if you want to send it as a gift you can mention this in the comment giving me their e-mail and I shall send it directly to them.

My second Cookbook “More Than A Greek Salad” (in English) is now available in DIGITAL FORM only, on the Amazon Kindle:

This cookbook is really two cookbooks combined in one. In the first part you will find all you need to know about the Mediterranean Diet.

In Part 1, the reader is given to understand what The Mediterranean Diet is all about and what nutritional benefits one can derive from it.

The Mediterranean Diet comprises a cuisine hailed by dietitians and nutritionists the world over as one of the healthiest.

In More Than A Greek Salad, I give you more than the names of the ingredients and the directions needed to effect a most satisfying dish. I explain, in great detail, the what, the what with, the why, the how much and the when to eat that dish, all enormously important questions, if you want  to get the most out of that dish when it comes to your needs for nourishment, for taste and, yes, even for entertainment!

In the second part you will find the Cookbook, which is a collection of over 250 of the best healthy Greek recipes, based on the Mediterranean Diet, with no starving and no bland food.  You will discoverer that Greek cuisine is not all about “moussakas”, “gyros”, “tzatziki” and “Greek salad”.

Greek cuisine consists of a large variety of dishes that can fully satisfy the gastronomic quests of both vegetarians and meat lovers.   Many of these recipes were recreated or created to have much less calories than the traditional Greek recipes.

At the end of the book you will find a lot of options of food you can eat on a daily basis, to create a healthy menu.  An analysis of nutritional facts and calories are given for the suggested recipes.
