Irini's modern take on her native cuisine as well as that of her home in Cartmel, Cumbria.
Glorious and sumptuous. From the simplest dishes through to the more complex, Irini totally captures the gastronomy of Greece.
You can learn cooking technique. What you cannot put into somebody is absolute love and passion. And Irini is just bursting with it! It's from the heart, every time she cooks.
The 2019 MasterChef champion has created a stunning book full of delicious family friendly recipes. Ideas for breakfast, quick meals, salads and dinner are included. Moussaka, baklava and slow-roasted lamb are some of the tastiest dishes on the menu.
A beautiful book.
Completely mouthwatering, elegant and celebratory.
What a gorgeous book! The recipes and the beautiful photos had me immediately transported to the beautiful island of Crete. If only I could hop on a plane; cooking the recipes in my kitchen will be the next best thing.
Greek food has a very special place in my heart as I spent some very enjoyable early years of my career working in a Greek restaurant in Southampton! Under The Olive Tree is a treasure trove of personal and factual information about the food of Greece and its islands. Irini's love and passion for Greek ingredients as well as for values associated with food such as nurture, sharing and hospitality are infectious.
An ode to Greek gastronomy.
