Le recensioni dei clienti, comprese le valutazioni a stelle dei prodotti, aiutano i clienti ad avere maggiori informazioni sul prodotto e a decidere se è il prodotto giusto per loro.
Per calcolare la valutazione complessiva e la ripartizione percentuale per stella, non usiamo una media semplice. Piuttosto, il nostro sistema considera cose come quanto è recente una recensione e se il recensore ha acquistato l'articolo su Amazon. Ha inoltre analizzato le recensioni per verificarne l'affidabilità.
The recipes inside the book are great so my stars are for the contents of the recipe book which I can't wait to to start cooking from. The book arrived exactly when Amazon said it would but that is where good things end. The condition of the book is appalling as every single corner of the front and back cover has been damaged also including the 4 corners of the spine, so it makes the book look like its second or third hand before I've even opened it. When I buy something NEW I expect it to look new and in pristine not look like it's been kicked around. Proper packaging would have gone a long way to prevent any damage to the contents of the parcel! Excellent cookery book but I will think twice before I order online again.
I've been looking forward to this book for a little while now. If you've ever had the pleasure of tasting Marianna's food at Morito Hackney Rd, you know. Her passion for her native Crete shines through on every page of this book.
This is a celebration of simple, honest flavours that to me typify Cretan food. The Mountains, Land and of course being a fisherman's daughter the Sea all get solid representation. I love Marianna's straight forward approach to her recipes. The personal stories dotted about sharing her culinary journey make this more than a recipe book.
It didn't take long to ear-mark several recipes I want to try. "Beef Cheeks with Potatoes," "Prawns with Ouzo, Orzo and Courgette," "Tomato and Oregano Fritters with whipped Feta" as well as some classics "Lamb Cutlets with Lemon and Oregano," "Stuffed Vine Leaves," "Cretan Summer Salad," and the beautiful "Kakavia," a one pot fish stew, just to name a few. Honestly, I would've bought the book for the Orange and Broken Filo Pastry Pie alone (if you've not had it, it's a revelation).
Travel itself may be limited this summer but I've found a delicious alternative to explore Crete this summer.
I spent a wonderful time in Crete this summer, so what better thing to do than to while away the winter months re-living the holiday through the pages of this lovely book. This is more than just a book of recipes, it is homage to the Greece and Crete, and its food. I love to pick it up and read the stories, as well as the recipes themselves which are perfectly adapted to the home cook. I am looking forward to cooking my way through to my next trip to Greece and I will certainly find time to go to Morito in Hackney before then.
Marianna has succeeded brilliantly in putting her passion and philosophy of food to paper. I've had the pleasure of working with her on and off for a decade and my main observation has been that she isn't just an intuitive chef but also a teacher. She discusses ingredients, processes and potentials, that makes service a learning experience rather than the do your best job it often is. The food is bright, unpretentious and delicious, just like her! Well done darling, it's wonderful x
The most beautiful book I own. Easy to follow recipes that encapsulate the wonderful flavours of Marianna's cooking and transport you to the sundrenched island of Crete. Beautiful images and Marianna's heartfelt stories of life in Crete make this cookbook a delightful journey. Bought for everyone who missed their summer holidays this pandemic. It's a real joy to read.
Lovely photography, writing and nice ideas but some of the recipes are really inaccurate and needed a good bit of adjustment for them to work. It doesn't feel like they were properly tested in a domestic kitchen.
Also, the spine of my copy has completely broken after only a few uses.
Love, love, love this book. Perfectly timed as the chances of getting to Greece this year are slim. It’s beautiful and atmospheric, recreating the simple and humble approach of Greek island cooking and the recipes look really achievable. I’m going to make the potato and tomato bake with some grilled sea bass this weekend along with the Metaxa prawns and leaf and fig salad. Efaristo Marianna!
If you're up for a quick hip, skip and hop to the Aegean, this book is for you. Evocative and truly reminiscent of a Greece only few get to experience. Marianna has managed to encapsulate all the above in both her recipes and writing. You must must must go out and buy this!
