Cookbook Giveaway: “Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water” Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!

My dear friend Ivy, author of the blog Kopiaste…to Greek Hospitality has generously offered to give away her e-book to one of my lucky readers!

The e-book: Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste “is a collection of over 230 of the best Greek-Cypriot savory recipes, revised and updated with a fresh, modern new look, a brief history of the recipe, clear instructions, useful tips and 100’s of mouth-watering pictures, with a lot of step-by-step instructions with pictures. The recipes are written both in the U.S. and the metric system and substitutes are given for local ingredients.”

Volume 1 includes recipes for Mezedes (appetizers), salads, side dishes and main dishes.

Volume 2 includes recipes for breads, pies, snacks and desserts.

If you want to learn more about Greek-Cypriot cooking and culture than this is the book for you! “The cookbook is not only addressed to the lovers of Greek food in general but is also a handbook to all the Greeks of “diaspora” who will not only get back to the simple hearty fare of their childhood by recreating the recipes of their ancestors but will also come closer to their culture and heritage.”

To enter leave me a comment telling me what your favorite Greek dish is. I will chose one winner from the entries this Wednesday to receive both volumes.

Buy this book in print.

    Taramosalata = fish roe salad/dip. YUM. I first had it on the ferry from Brindisi, Italy, over to Greece. Absolutely delicious and I fell in love at first bite.

    I LOVE Dolmathes and Avgolemono.  Then there is Moussaka.  It reminds me of growing up, my Italian grandmother would make moussaka with the fresh eggplant from my grandfather’s garden.
