Cookbook- Sophie's Cookbook Delicious Limnos Recipes for All Seasons by Sophie Hapsis
This beautiful cookbook shares delicious meals, desserts and home-baked bread that grace the table Sophie Hapsi and her family.
Sophie has compiled her family recipes handed down from her grandmother as well as other signature recipes from other families from the beautiful island of Limnos.
Along with the recipes, we are taken on a journey down memory lane, travelling from spring to summer then on to autumn and into the rare snow of a Limnos winter. It is a journey filled with fascinating insights. We learn how island cheese was made, how meat was made to last for months, how refugees from Asia Minor brought new dishes to the island a century ago, how its women often shared their tasks and the inventive ways they conjured appetizing meals from the simplest of ingredients, many of them gathered from the fields and seashore. And all is brought to vivid life by the brilliant photography of Pantelis Pravlis.
Her book is a celebration of this hidden gem of an island, full of different seasonal produce and dishes that are easy to be recreate here in Australia
Many Australians who have visited Limnos as part of Maeve O'Meara's Gourmet Safari Tours have been welcomed into her beautiful island farmhouse and enjoyed her delicious cooking.
A must for your cookbook collection.
