Greek-Australian Maria Benardis welcomes you to her table to enjoy Greek food the way her family has always done. In these 100 recipes, passed down the generations, you will find time-honoured classics such as moussaka and souvlakia, as well as modern adaptations of traditional dishes - spicy ouzo keftedes and filo pizza with lamb. Alongside are the intimate tales of family life: an aunt learning to make Greek Easter bread in war-ravaged Kalamata; a generation of relatives arriving to make a new home in Australia, their suitcases bulging with their beloved ingredients; the author as a child keeping a secret vegie garden on the island of Psara. My Greek Family Table is a personal invitation to experience all the depth and flavour of Greek food and the wonderful spirit of kerasma - the offering of food to those we love.

About Maria Benardis

Maria Benardis was born in Australia but spent her early years on the Greek island of Psara. It was here that her great love affair with organic, seasonal produce was born, and she willingly learned how to make traditional Greek dishes from the women in her family. After returning to Australia, Maria forged a successful career in accounting but after 15 years, decided a change in direction was required. She followed her heart and in February 2007 she launched Greekalicious, Sydney's first exclusively Greek cooking school. This successful business has expanded to include catering and culinary tours to Greece, and Maria regularly appears on radio and television to share the Greek heritage that means so much to her.
