A fine collection of family recipes from the lands of Constantinople and Smyrna. The Byzantine Emperors were known for attracting the best chefs and the resulting cuisine later helped form the basis of Western European cuisine. The influence of Asia Minor on these dishes creates complex and atypical flavors not common to other areas of Greece. It's true "Politiki Kouzina" (Constaninople Cuisine).
