What a treat! The recipe book has arrived and I have spent the entire evening looking at the photos, the recipes and all the families involved. What a fantastic book! I am full of admiration for you all. The book is beautifully put together. It's a lovely combination of recipes and wonderful photographs. It must have taken a lot of time and effort to produce this….a real labour of love I think.

Re cook book. It's great. Have included it under recipes on the site www.ithacagreece.com for anyone wishing to purchase it. Really worth the wait. It's being passed around at the moment because there is tremendous interest in it. Get some copies over here for the tourist shops. It will sell like hotcakes. Locals want it, too.
