COMING SOON to PBS: My Greek Table with Diane Kochilas
The 13-part series will be seen exclusively on public television stations beginning October 2017. Companion books for the series are available for purchase:
The Food and Wine of Greece: This tantalizing collection of recipes covers all aspects of Greek cuisine and pays tribute to the history and tradition behind each dish. Each chapter--from olives and bread to appetizers, stews, savory pies, fish, poultry, meat, eggs, grains, vegetables, and sweets--is filled with detail on the ancient, religious and folkloric origins or various dishes. Basic preparations, such as those for phyllo, avgolemono, and grilling of fish and game, are covered, as are regional variations and local specialties, secrets of village home cooks, and guidelines on how to serve the foods in typical Greek fashion. Also included is a helpful guide on where and how to obtain Greek specialty items by mail.
Ikaria: Lessons on Food, Life and Longevity from the Greek Island where people forgot to die. Award winning cookbook author, Diane Kochilas has created an instant classic that is part cookbook, part cultural history, filled with gorgeous photography, luscious recipes and interviews with locals and packed with the often quirky secrets to a long life that Ikarians are spoon-fed from birth.
