The Ladies Philoptochos Chapter at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity in Charleston compiled its first edition of Popular Greek Recipes in 1957. This is a collection of recipes retained in families of Greek descent for many generations but now adapted to new ingredients and shorter methods. All of these savory and satisfying recipes have been kitchen-tested and still comprise the major portion of the menus served in Greek-American homes in the United States. From salads, soups, and appetizers to delicious syrup pastries this spiral-bound book also features Greek Lenten foods and menu suggestions

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great cookbook!

As an American Navy wife who lived in Greece for three years and loved the food, I find this cookbook to be an excellent source of authentic Greek food. I bought one years ago at the Greek festival in Charleston and have used it more than any other cookbook I have ever owned. Purchasing this one for a gift, although I sure do love how this one is hardback, so may have to look for another gift and keep this one!

Purchased as a present for my wife after she saw her sisters copy. She has spent her recent evenings combing through the pages and talking about which recipe to try next. Really like the new "Hardback" binding.

I first bought this cook book in 1976 at St. Demetrious Greek Church in Saginaw, Mi. I am first generation Greek. It was time for a new cook book, as the one I bought in 1976 was falling apart and had food stains on it. I really enjoy this cook book. I bought it also for my daughter for Christman. Thank you again for a lovely cook book..

I was very happy to see that the cover has been upgraded to a sturdier construction. The one my sister and I share has seen "way" better days. I might order her one for Christmas.... It arrived well wrapped and very quickly

I received my copy of Popular Greek Recipes in 1970 from my mother in law. I have used mine so much that the pages and cover have fallen apart. It is still my go to cookbook used almost every day although the recipes are committed to memory by now. I got a copy to give to my daughter in law. I have also given copies to both of my daughters.

Just received this book two days ago, and have been pouring over it ever since. Lots of recipes I'm anxious to try, lots of ones I've had and loved in Greek restaurants.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fantastic cookbook!

I discovered this cookbook when I borrowed it from a friend, and quickly realized I wanted a copy of my own. This is the latest edition, which has a very durable hard cover. It's a fabulous book filled with hundreds of recipes including a large selection of lenten and fast recipes. Many of these recipes are vegetarian which is great for me since my family is vegetarian. This cookbook has been continually in print for decades and I can see why!
