Marianna Leivaditaki is a natural storyteller. She grew up in Chania, on the Greek island of Crete, and spent her childhood helping out in the family-run taverna. After school, she carried around her blue notebook, writing down
all the recipes she would like to cook, helped by the Greek grannies' kitchen wisdom. Marianna's love for the food of her heritage flows off every page, but she also has a contemporary take on it. As head chef of Morito in Hackney, she has championed high-quality ingredients, presenting them in simple, stunning sharing plates, and has been critically acclaimed for doing so.
These inspirational recipes derive from the SEA, the LAND and the MOUNTAINS. We all know the health benefits of a Mediterranean diet, rich in olive oil, fresh vegetables and fruit, nuts, fish and whole grains, as well as the importance
of how you eat and appreciate your food. Marianna offers achievable, yet delicious dishes celebrating seasonal, fresh food that you can take time to enjoy with friends and family.
'A gorgeous, evocative and deeply personal book that transports you to Crete and celebrates its cuisine through the cooking of one of our most exciting chefs. The brilliant Marianna holds your hand as she guides you from the crystal waters of the coast to the craggy mountains of her beloved homeland, cooking up the most delicious creations along the way. I want to make everything in this beautiful book. An absolute treasure.',
Rosie Birkett, author of The Joyful Home Cook

A stunningly beautiful book that celebrates the simplicity and integrity of Cretan cooking.
