Katerina WhitleyAs you prepare for the holidays, take a look at Around a Greek Table, Recipes and Stories. 

You will be reminded of family gatherings and your own traditions and rituals. Katerina’s book will help you develop your own rituals for holy days. Nothing brings back memories as acutely as a smell and a taste from our childhood home. The author’s passion for Greek food and culture will make you want to share in these memories and tastes. The book is arranged according to the liturgical calendar of the Eastern Church, but you can easily fit it in your own sacred calendar.

Around a Greek Table includes 100 Greek recipes adapted for the American kitchen, and many stories about family, Greek culture, mythology, and the church seasons as observed in Greece. The publisher is Globe-Pequot Press/Lyons Press. The book was released on April 3, 2012.
