In Cooking with Loula , author Alexandra Stratou invites readers into the kitchen of her modern Greek family, revealing their annual traditions and bringing their recipes to life--with touching remembrances of Kyria Loula, the woman who cooked for three generations of Alexandra's family and who taught her that cooking is as much about love and identity as it is about nourishment. Many classic dishes are represented, such as pastitsio and dolmades, but Stratou's culinary training abroad shows up in such non Hellenic creations as a green salad with avocado, apple, and Dijon mustard and a spinach gnocchi in which feta cheese appears alongside Gorgonzola. The hundred-plus recipes are organized the way real home cooks think, with chapters for simple, healthful weekday dishes; more languorous Sunday meals; and traditional holiday fare.

In trying to capture the magic of this book, Alice Waters says it best: "Alexandra Stratou approaches Greek food in a soulful and imaginative way that honors the generations of cooks who have come before her. These simple, delicious dishes highlight the flavors of each season and come alive with Stratou's vivid storytelling."
