Culinaria Greece Summary


Culinaria Greece: Greek Specialties by Marianthi Milona

Those who seek out the land of the Greeks with their souls also like to nourish their bodies a la Greek. In the homeland of Homer, Sophocles, and Plato, where historical-cultural treasures and Mediterranean flair are part of everyday life, the love of good food is an integral element of the culture. This volume of Culinaria leads us from the banquet tables of ancient symposia to the sophisticated arrangements of haute cuisine in the metropolises as well as the simpler fare enjoyed by fishermen, farming families, and shepherds. Naturally, wine, olives, sheep's cheese, fish, and fruits play an important role in Greek dishes. This sensual journey across the mainland and the islands provides a view behind the scenes of Greek culinary culture for fans of this country, in which the Orthodox Easter celebration is just one of the highlights. More than 1,300 colored illustrations on 460 pages as well as numerous authentic recipes make even reading this book an experience for the palate.

About Marianthi Milona


Marianthi Milona was born in 1965 in Thessaloniki and studied German, English, and Greek philology in Cologne. Since 1990, she has been a journalist for regional, national, and international radio and print media. Because of her in-depth knowledge of Greece and the Balkans, she regularly makes extended research trips to all the important areas of southeast Europe. Werner Stapelfeldt began his career as a photographer for travel guides and magazines. After studying photo design he went to work as a freelance photographer, predominantly in the commercial field, working for agencies and institutions. His assignment with the Culinaria series took him to Greece for eight months, where he uncovered unusual wines, fruits, and various Greek dishes. He spent time with people at work and at play and, of course, at the table, all the while endeavoring to capture the country, its specialties, and its atmosphere in the photographs that illustrate this book.
