First Impression. Size: 4to Quarto. 216 pages. Previous owner's inscription in ink, neat. Maria Benardis was born to Greek immigrants in Australia, but at the age of three was sent to live on the island of Psara, Greece, with her grandmother, because her mother was gravely ill. As a teenager she returned to Australia, but Maria kept going back to visit the islands of Greece that are home to her extended family. She lives and breathes Greek culture and tradition, and is a passionate ambassador of its cuisine, running her own Greek cooking school in Sydney. This book is as inviting to read as it is to cook from. The intriguing family stories woven through the recipe text reminds me of Tessa Kiros's Falling Cloudberries. Quantity Available: 1.
