About 3 Greek Sisters Back to the Beginning

Three Sisters Back to the Beginning is the much-anticipated sequel to Three Sisters Around the Greek Table, the must-have Greek cookbook of 2009 that received numerous awards and became a national bestseller. This sequel is a sleek and elegant book that unfolds and reads like a gift. From the cover design alone, readers will feel they have come upon something different and special. “When people see our book we want them to be moved by a different impulse,” say the sisters, “one of nostalgia, connection and love.  In our lives these emotions and food are synonymous.”


The 3 Greek sisters, as they have come to be known, worked on this new book for the last two years. “It took us a bit longer this time around as we were still busy promoting our first book.” And busy they were indeed, making appearances at festivals across the country, on television shows such as Steven & Chris, Breakfast Television, CityLine, and a book signing tour across Ontario, Quebec and the East Coast.


In the hands of the 3 Greek Sisters, the classic Mediterranean kitchen of Greece becomes comforting, exciting and achievable. Fast and easy family favourites such as savory Shrimp Saganaki, and Fiery Feta Dip, are balanced with recipes that slow you down, and make you wait with anticipation like comforting Homemade Yogurt, succulent Lamb Shanks, and paper-thin Homemade Phyllo. As with their first book, the layout is clean, the recipes are approachable and the food photography is beautiful.


Once again the 3 Greek Sisters have dished up a poignant and inspiring cookbook. This time around, readers are taken on a nostalgic journey that documents the magic of childhood and the connection between family, place, and identity. Three Sisters Back to the Beginning is both a cookbook and an inspiring art book to be cherished. Fans will not be disappointed.
