The Family Cookbook

The Splendor of Greece

Here's something you might not have known about author, Kathi Batsis:  She is a highly skilled cook whose dishes have been carried down through generations.  Winning acclaim for her tasty dishes from family & friends, Kathi has always taken her kitchen affairs very seriously.  The many meals in her repertoire were favorites of Andrew Batsis, her late husband and eternal muse.  If you've read the manuscript and digested the contents of this website (hopefully not literally!), let's see if you can guess which of these dishes was Andy's favorite!


This is your opportunity to try your hand at some honest-to-goodness, Greek family recipes.  While we wholeheartedly support our own entrepreneurs, you can forget about that amazing, neighborhood Greek restaurant you've been ordering from... this is the real deal.  Included for authenticity are the actual family copies of these recipes from Kathi Batsis' personal archives.
