You know and love Uncle Jesse from Full House, or maybe you tried Spanakopita at the last Smorgasbord, but if that’s the closest you’ve gotten to true Greek culture then you’re in for a treat! My Greek Family Table by Maria Benardis is due out May 16 and it will forever change the way you think of Greek food in the best way possible.
Through personal narrative and delicious, mouth-watering recipes, Benardis brings the culture of Psara right to your kitchen. Her passion for cooking and health has led Benardis to cultivate some of the tastiest dishes that will make you feel good, too! She learned to cook with family and friends, and so Benardis shares how important those familial, community cooking lessons were in developing her own tastes and techniques.
