Modern Greek Cooking: 100 Recipes for Meze, Entrees, and Desserts

Atlanta native and Kyma chef and owner Pano I. Karatassos wrote his first cookbook in 2018, and it’s filled with recipes inspired by his upbringing and Greek background. The cookbook combines recipes from his grandmother (“Yiayia“), who lived with the family and taught Karatassos what he calls the “fundamentals of Greek cuisine.” Expect traditional meze dishes like tabbouleh, tzatziki, and hummus, along with larger, family-style dishes in the book. The chef’s cousin Sofia Pepera (a wine expert from Athens, Greece) provides pairings or grape recommendations for each recipe, too.
