Cooking to Share
After ten years of selling books in Greece, we are delighted to announce that we have finally found the Perfect Greek Cookbook.
Alexandra Stratou is truly, deeply Greek, but also studied the art of cooking at the Escuela de Cocina Luis Irizar, in San Sebastian, Spain.
Through a Kickstarter campaign launched in March 2013, Alexandra created a community of over 500 people who supported her in self-publishing this book.
As Alexandra writes herself, the book “was conceived in the midst of the Greek crisis – when everything looked grim and the landscape surrounding me was one of negativity. Even if I had food to eat and a place to stay the environment far from lent itself to my desire for productive activity and expression of creative energy. Making this cookbook started as a genuine desire to collect the recipes I grew up eating and pay tribute to two influential women in my life, but has grown into much more than that.”
The book has grown into a beautiful testament to creativity, passion, and above all the rich, delicious tradition of Greek cuisine. We at Atlantis Books can testify to that not only because a copy occupies a permanent spot on the shelf of our own bookstore kitchen, but because we’ve savored the flavors courtesy of the chef herself, when she cooked and shared for over 100 of us when she presented her book at our Caldera Arts & Literature Festival in July 2014.
Suffice to say: we ate the whole thing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
