Combining the best of memoir, travel literature, and food writing, Christopher Bakken delves into one of the most under appreciated cuisines in Europe in this rollicking celebration of the Greek table. He explores the traditions and history behind eight elements of Greek cuisine-olives, bread, fish, cheese, beans, wine, meat, and honey-and journeys through the country searching for the best examples of each. He picks olives on Thasos, bakes bread on Crete, eats thyme honey from Kythira with one of Greece's greatest poets, and learns why Naxos is the best place for cheese in the Cyclades. Worki.
