ABOUT THE BOOK:

Christina Loucas, creator of the popular blog Afrodite’s Kitchen, shares over 80 recipes that showcase the very best of Cypriot cooking in Cyprus Cuisine. Featuring traditional and modern dishes that are sure to delight anyone with a taste for Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours, Christina invites the reader into a Cypriot kitchen that can be accessed from anywhere around the world.

Cyprus is known for its humble but alluring culinary traditions that mix Mediterranean and Middle Eastern tastes and ingredients. Following a four-year quest to preserve Cyprus’s best and most indelible recipes while living on the island, Christina here captures the essence of traditional Cypriot cooking through the rich variety of the flavours Cyprus is known for—mint, honey, halloumi, tomato, feta, coriander, orange blossom, lemon and citrus. Featuring a wide range of both sweet and savoury baked goods, healthy vegetarian fare, and tender meat dishes, Christina has recipes for cooks of all tastes and skill levels.

Cyprus Cuisine includes timeless recipes for homemade halloumi, spicy stuffed zucchini blossoms, lamb tomato orzo stew, and buttery pistachio baklava that are approachable whether you are familiar with Cypriot food or not. Christina also shares modern Cypriot recipes that showcase the traditional ingredients and flavours of Cyprus, such as feta and ricotta ravioli, one-cup sesame orange biscotti, and pomegranate pavlova, all accompanied by gorgeous photos that will transport the reader directly into a Cypriot kitchen.

Afrodites Kitchen Cookbook (Italian)

Questo libro parla di una piccola isola del Mediterraneo sud-orientale chiamata Cipro, e della sua irresistibile cucina. Cipro gode di una posizione privilegiata (incastonata tra Grecia, Turchia, Libano, Israele, Siria ed Egitto) e di una cucina che si distingue da quella greca così come da quella mediorientale, in un inebriante incontro di sapori, profumi e tradizioni. Mare, montagne e frutti della terra: una natura forte e generosa che entra nei piatti casalinghi – tramandati per generazioni dalle famiglie dell’isola – e nelle evoluzioni della gastronomia moderna. Insalata di fichi d’India, muffin speziati alle zucchine, stufato di polipo al vino, stufato di coniglio alle cipolle, souwlaki cipriota, baklava al pistacchio, crostata di prugne all’acqua di rose, budino di mosto d’uva… .

Afrodites Kitchen Cookbook (German)

Aphrodite, die Göttin der Liebe, der Schönheit und der sinnlichen Begierde soll bei Zypern dem Meer entstiegen sein. Vermutlich hätte auch sie sich für die Leckerbissen von Christina Loucas, der bekanntesten Insel-Bloggerin, begeistert: Denn die Rezepte, die sie für ihr erstes Kochbuch „Aphrodites Küche“ zusammengestellt hat, sind eine Liebeserklärung an Zypern. Traditionelle Gerichte werden neu interpretiert, überraschend und einfach göttlich. Tahini-Pastetchen und Olivenbrot, zyprische Lasagne, pikant gefüllte Zucchiniblüten und Baklava mit Pistazien bringen den Mittelmeer-Sommer auf den Teller. Abwechslung wird dabei groß geschrieben, denn aufgrund der Lage ist Zyperns Küche nicht nur von Griechenland inspiriert, sondern auch von Syrien, Israel, der Türkei und dem Libanon. Und auch das Auge isst mit in „Aphrodites Küche“: Wunderschöne Bilder aus Zypern nehmen mit auf die Reise und holen Sonne, Sommer und Meer nach Hause.
