Not just another Cookbook
A Taste of Greece: Recipes, Cuisine & Culture is an illustrated cookbook coordinated by Princess Tatiana of Greece and edited by the food writer Diana Farr Louis. It is a non-profit publication whose sales benefit the Greek charity Boroume ("we can!"), supporting food supplies both to refugees in Greece and to Greeks suffering poverty due to the country's economic crisis.
“Having been born to multicultural parents and lacking a sense of national identity, food has always played an integral part in forming my cultural identity. Moving to Greece with my husband, Prince Nikolaos, has added a new chapter to my culinary identity and allowed me to define what ‘home’ tastes like. Through this project I have fallen in love with Greece and its exquisite tastes all over again.”
