Yiayia: Regional Recipes and Stories from Greece's Grandmothers showcases regional Greek cookery and features sharing and feasting dishes, mainly vegetarian, from the kitchens of grandmothers across Greece.
Think stuffed zucchini from Lesvos. A Tinian fourtalia. Corfiot spicy bourdeto stew. Ionian pasta dishes. Cretan Dakos salad. Watermelon cake from Milos. Despite its popularity, what people know of Greek cuisine is still fairly limited when considering the breadth and diversity of dishes you can find in homes across its 6,000 islands and mainland. Yiayia will map out the diverse dishes of Greece — far beyond the most commonly-known Moussaka, Greek Salad, and tzatziki dip – through the fascinating recipes and stories of its Yiayiades.
