A wonderful collection of 30 traditional and modern Greek meze, soups and dip recipes created by Vasso Pylas. This is the first time that Vasso has ever revealed the secrets of these family recipes, handed down to her through the generations. In this book, written by her youngest daughter, Eva, and her daughter-in-law, Sarah, Vasso shares her time-honoured recipes for classic Greek dips, hearty soups and popular family favourites such as delicious spanakopita, blissfully simple salads and delightfully tasty calamari krassato. The stories alongside each recipe take you on a fun journey into her kitchen and family life where you will discover the alluring flavours of authentic Greek cuisine for yourself.

About the Author

Born in the village of Selia in Crete, Vasso moved to the UK in 1969 where she met and fell in love with Lefteris Pylas, a Greek Cypriot living in London. Vasso has worked in many restaurants over the years and also as a private caterer, devising menus based on her traditional family favourites. Eva Ryan is Vasso's youngest daughter and is currently taking a break from her career as an events manager to focus on raising her twin boys and writing the recipes for this book. Sarah Pylas is a freelance writer and blogger, who started sharing stories about Greek/English family life on her blog, Grenglish, in 2011. She also writes for local magazines and The Huffington Post.
