Prospero's Kitchen.....
« on: February 10, 2012, 09:25:31 AM »
.....Mediterranean Cooking of the Ionion Islands from Corfu to Kythera by Diana Farr Louis & June Marinos
ISBN-10: 1780761368
ISBN-13: 978-1780761367 (these are the numbers for the re-print - see below)

The 7 Ionion Islands of Greece's west coast are a world where fresh produce is abundant, where cooking is as sensual as life itself (a common theme this where food and life are intwined; be it around the Church calendar, other festivals or the kafenion (sp). The recipes here come mostly from family notebooks handed down through generations, and they reflect the cosmopolitan nature of the local cuisine. Few of the regions visitors get a chance to taste this real Ionion cooking, and this book reveals what they have been missing.

This book has just been re-printed and is available to pre-order on Amazon for a 12th April 2012 release. Price 17.00. This compares very favourably with the prices for the original also on Amazon.

I missed this post!

An excellent book if you are looking for recipes from the Ionian islands.

I was only today looking at my battered paperback copy of this book. I bought it in 2001 and the price written inside is 17. Today on Amazon it will cost 13.40 for a hard cover version!

My book opens automatically to Soula's Squash Pie (a Corfiot recipe)! I make a lot of this when we have a glut of courgettes.

As an aside, we met one of the authors, Diana Farr Louis, in the old school taverna in Koukouli in Zagoria a few years ago!
Think before you speak! If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
