warm, flavorful cookbook is full of the enjoyment of good food that is
so freely expressed by all Albanians during their many feasts and holidays
throughout the year. Treasured recipes include: grape leaves, yogurt,
egg-lemon soup, shish kebab, lamb dishes, moussaka, lenten foods, spinach
pie, breads, baklava, butter cookies, fried dough, as well as preserves.
This 6" x 9" hard cover edition with full color jacket includes 208 beautifully
illustrated pages of over 300 recipes collected from the kitchens of immigrants
and first generation Albanians of the Worcester, MA community.
These foods from this Balkan
country are similar to those of neighboring Mediterranean and Near Eastern
countries. This is not only an adventure in excellent food but an
account of tradition and customs, a portrait of a way of life from the
"land of the eagles".
