Sea Salt and Honey: A New Greek Cookbook
An enchanting celebration of Greek provincial life captured in 100 delectable recipes and captivating stories from the Greek-American Tsakiris family, accompanied by more than 100 visually stunning full-color photographs by James Beard award-winning photographer Romas Foord.
Sea Salt and Honey is a delightful ode to the rustic lifestyle of Nicholas Tsakiris’ birthplace where he eventually began to grow his own food, working together to plant and harvest each season’s bounty in their garden. Like many Greeks, they eat seasonally, and most of the recipes they prepare are inspired by the food grown in their own backyard.
In an age when retaining your roots, mindful eating, and work-life balance are becoming increasingly rare, Sea Salt and Honey is a reminder of the importance of tradition and a celebration of personal history that combines delicious, healthy recipes with a call to a simpler way of life such as:
Smoked Trout and Wilted Lettuce Garden Salad
Savory Greek Yogurt Bowls
Grilled Octopus Marinated in Red Wine Vinegar, Honey, and Oregano
Lamb Slow-Cooked in the Gastra (Clay Pot)
Sea Salt and Honey Chocolate Chunk Cookies
James Beard award-winning photographer Romas Ford’s incredible images capture the sense of community and Greek culture that infuse and inspire these dishes. Filled with stories, adventures, memories, and beautiful photographs, Sea Salt and Honey pays tribute to authentic and Greek-inspired cuisine, and is a culinary celebration of a place where the love of the land, of nature, and of a simple but rich life makes you feel at home.
