"Cretan Cooking" by Psilakis M & Psilakis N.
International scientific research has proved that Cretan cooking offers people good health and long life. It is based more on the consumption of plenty of olive oil, vegetables, wild greens, pulses, and grains and less on the consumption of meat. Nevertheless, this does not mean that it is lacking in taste.
Cretan dishes send forth fine flavors and tastes which can still be found in the villages of the island. It should be noted that, although in past years Cretans ate meat once a week (or even more rarely) and fish a little more often, they still knew how to prepare both meat and fish in many ways, usually combined with vegetables or pulses. Likewise, they know numerous recipes for the preparation of the snails, since snails are among the favorite dishes of the Cretans.
In this book, you will find the main recipes which have been preserved in Crete for centuries, and which, together with the way of life, constitute what is called today "The Miracle Of The Cretan Diet".
