Mediterranean Hot and Spicy

Not sure if this one has been discussed, but I picked it up a a half-price bookstore today. The author is Aglaia Kremezi. I've just gone through the first chapter: Spice Blends, Sauces and Condiments. They all sound wonderful. She also wrote The Foods of Greece. Anyone familiar?

yes, she is a Goddess! Definitely the most 'learned' of the Greek authors.

Thank you! I love it when I find a good one....I will definitely look for her other one. Husband loves falafel and I've never made it, but will try.

Falafel - my favourite street food. Ungreek of me, but I even prefer it to souvlaki. ;-)

We love it on sandwiches or in salads. Now, I'm hungry!

I thought you were the Greek Goddess! LOL! I just went to Aglaia Kremezi's web site...lovely. Now I have to spend some money and buy some MORE books. I hate paying shipping from the US to Ireland. Oh, well.

why don't you use amazon.co.uk? Or, you might find it on ebay.uk?

evelyn, this book (paperback) is going to cost me $21US shipped from the UK!...used. What did Carole pay for the book? Outrageous! I think I'll wait and see if I can get the book in the US when I'm there in July. As it is now, I bring an extra empty suitcase to go there and bring the same back full! I've already got three cookbooks waiting for me....I better start lifting heavier weights to get in shape!

yep, you'd obviously get a better deal if you bought it in the States...I'd wait, too.

Carole, didn't this book just come out in May 09? How could it be half-price already? I think this is strange, but good.

I thought the same thing. Bookman's here in Tucson always has newly released books. They have best sellers and people turn in their books for money or credit toward other purchases. I buy my Saveur, Bon Appetit and Gourmet there. They have the latest issues.
