Alexandra Pascalidou takes us on a personal food journey in My big fat Greek cookbook, for which she has selected the best of the recipes that form the backbone of Greek cooking. This is the vibrant tale of a childhood in which money was scarce and flavour abundant. It takes us from a little Greek village via the rich vegetable stalls at Rinkeby square to the Greek gastronomy of today. Alexandra’s culinary excursions fascinate with their variety of flavours, anecdotes and personal encounters. Her collection of wonderful Greek recipes have been amassed during a whole life of meals and memories.
