Recently I received the opportunity to review a copy of Debbie Matenopoulos’ cookbook “It’s All Greek to Me.” I was thrilled to do so. You see, I love Greek food, but for some reason I have never added a Greek cookbook to my library. I have German, French, Austrian, Italian – all sorts. But no Greek.
I was first introduced to Greek food when we lived in Germany. At the Post Exchange in Schweinfurt, there was often a Greek food truck parked out front. This was both my first introduction to Greek food, as well as to the amazing phenomenon of Food Trucks. The little restaurant on wheels served amazing gyros, as well as Pommes Fritz which they served with tzatziki sauce. Let me tell you, if you have never had fries paired with tzatziki, you have no idea what you are missing!
So this week I received my copy of the cookbook, and the first recipe I tried was “Spanakopita” a.k.a. Spinach Feta Pie (page 115). This dish was simple to make and absolutely delicious. The rich spinach and feta filling inside shatter-in-your-mouth phyllo crust. Heavenly.
While we sat at the dinner table enjoying our supper, I paged through the cookbook reading off the names of all the recipes for my husband. It was met with frequent outbursts of “Holy Shnikeys!” and “Now that’s what I’m talking about!”
I foresee many more Greek dishes in our future thanks to Debbie’s beautiful cookbook.
