Book cover for My Greek Family Table by Maria Benardis
More than 100 Greek recipes, updated for the modern home cook

Greek dishes have influenced other cultures for thousands of years. The dishes and preparation are simple; the taste, divine. In My Greek Family Table, Maria Benardis describes her summers of cooking at her grandmother’s elbow on the Greek island of Psara, and places an emphasis on eating for health and well-being. The foods of ancient Greece are as relevant—and delicious—as ever, showcased in recipes such as:

  • Barley and Pomegranate Salad
  • Chicken with Herbed Feta Crust
  • Lamb with Avgolemono (egg and lemon sauce)
  • Hippocrates’ Spiced Wine

Written with passion and beautifully photographed, My Greek Family Table is a personal invitation to experience all the depth and flavor of Greek cooking and the wonderful spirit of kerasma —the offering of food to those we love.
