“Top 10 Cooking & Food Books for Spring 2016.” — Publishers Weekly
“Real Greek home cooking: healthy, homey, traditional, and seasoned here with Stratou’s stories.” — BookPage
“Chapter titles (e.g., Weekdays, Sundays, Traditions, Essential Recipes) will make perfect sense to home cooks, who will find it easy to determine which dishes can be made every day and which meals should be saved for weekends and special occasions. There’s a handy chart that orders all the recipes by cooking time, as well as an array of inviting, unfussy photographs. VERDICT: Stratou’s unique and intensely personal cookbook is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal
“This is not just another Greek cookbook—it is a cookbook with heart.” —Booklist
“Stratou approaches Greek food in a soulful and imaginative way that honors the generations of cooks who have come before her.” —Alice Waters
“ This is hands down the best cookbook that I have ever owned; I really do mean it. ” — Brady
“I received my book yesterday - as my wonderful Greek grandmother would say, "your hands are blessed" - I began going through all the recipes and honestly I became so very emotional that I began to cry.” — Peter V Gamba
“The book is beautiful! It is so much more than a cookbook - a work of art and love. Thank you for all the effort you put into it. It is wonderful to know someone who takes such pride and care in what they undertake to accomplish.” — Kay Rohde
