The Greek Slow Cooker – The Foodie Corner
Easy and delicious recipes from the heart
of the Mediterranean
So excited to announce… my BOOK is already in the world! Check out The Greek Slow Cooker on major international book retailer sites (some photos are also included at the bottom of this page) and, if you’re impressed enough, maybe ask for a copy! (I hope you’re impressed enough!)
The idea for this book came a long time ago, when I was first experimenting with the slow cooker and trying to make simple everyday dishes from scratch. For a while things weren’t going so well. But then I found some decent recipes and got the hang of it. I remember that one of my first successes was stuffed zucchini (zucchini) in egg and lemon sauce. He was ecstatic. I’m not sure anyone on the planet has been so happy to cook any stuffed vegetables. That put me on the path of trying numerous Greek classics and discovering that, actually, Greek cuisine is very well suited to this method.
The Greek slow cooker is a collection of food recipes that one would find on a Greek family table, in Greece, today. Most of them are quite traditional (Greeks, after all, love our classics) but some have interesting twists. What excites me the most is that many of these dishes are not what you would expect from a slow cooker! Yes, we have meaty soups and stews (Avgolemono chicken and Yiouvetsi beef, please get up), but we also have a cake without crust or two (someone from Spanakopita?), some egg recipes (Froutalia comes in, a delicious omelette with sausages and potatoes, yes, you can cook eggs in a slow cooker), several seafood options (hint: not just fish), lots of vegetables and legumes (vegetarians I’m watching you!) aaaay…. sweets! We can’t have a cookbook without candy now, can we? (I wait for you to try Portokalopita, also known as orange cake.) Do things you never imagined, using the best kitchen gadget ever invented!
I can also say that I am truly
honored that these truly amazing ladies took a look inside the book, and I am humbled by their words:
