PRODUCT INFORMATION

Summary

A collection of recipes and stories from the Mediterranean island of longevity.

Description

In the Aegean Sea lies the Greek island of Ikaria, where blue Mediterranean waters lap against a mountainous coastline and rocky trails lead to quaint villages, and where the locals seem to hold a secret.

Ikaria is known worldwide for its incredibly high life expectancies and low rates of chronic disease, much of which can be attributed to diet. Born to Greek parents, Meni Valle has always been fascinated by her family's traditions of cooking and eating. In Ikaria, Meni collects traditional recipes from across the island that encapsulate the best of Mediterranean food: vegetables, beans, whole grains, small amounts of meat and fish, a couple of glasses of wine, and plenty of olive oil. But she also tells the stories that make up Ikaria, where life is all about taking time: time to cook, to eat, to nap, to spend with family and friends, to enjoy and to appreciate.

With intimate glimpses of the island's festivals, produce, kitchens and people, Ikaria is a cookbook that will transport and transform you.

Critic Reviews

“Ikaria: Food and Life in the Blue Zone , by Meni Valle is a rather lovely book to have on the shelf as we enter what may well be a dark and rather sobering winter.”
