Aegean
‘A delicious evocation of place and memory from one of my favourite cooks.’ Allan Jenkins, Editor of Observer Food Monthly

‘This book is so much more than a cookbook, it’s a love song to a very special place and we are lucky to have the brilliant Marianna as our guide.’ Itamar Srulovich, co-founder of Honey & Co.

‘I want to make everything in this beautiful book. An absolute treasure.’ Rosie Birkett, author of The Joyful Home Cook

A natural storyteller, Marianna grew up in Chania, on the Greek island of Crete, where her father is a fisherman. She spent her childhood evenings helping out in the family-run taverna, standing on a chair peeling potatoes and gutting and de-scaling the day’s catch. By day she would carry her blue notebook, writing down the recipes she would like to prepare for her family and absorbing the kitchen wisdom of the Greek grannies she knew.
In Aegean, Marianna offers achievable, yet delicious dishes that celebrate seasonal, fresh food that you can take time to enjoy with friends and family. Derived from the SEA, the LAND and the MOUNTAINS, these inspirational recipes marry authentic Cretan culture and food with contemporary flavour combinations that embrace the ingredients and influences of the wider Mediterranean and include dishes such as Pan-fried Red Mullet with Rosemary, Tomato and Sweet Vinegar, Tomato and Oregano Fritters with Whipped Feta, Chicken with Okra, Oregano and Aged Vinegar, Slow-cooked Leg of Lamb with Orzo and Apple, Peach and Almond Tart with Sweet Yogurt.
