Modern Greek Cookery

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    In her article “It’s all Greek for me” (The Age, 22.04.2008 ) about avant-garde chef George Calombaris’ first cookbook, “The Press Club, Modern Greek Cookery,” Jane Faulkner writes “this talented young gun has changed the face of Greek food in Melbourne.” Calombaris mixes his cultural heritage, classical training and a love for modern cooking techniques to produce a unique cuisine. He was awarded with “Best Chef” and his restaurant, “The Press Club,” won “Best New Restaurant” in the “Age Good Food Guide” of 2008. For what seems to be the first modern Greek cookbook, Calombaris says he tried to give his interpretation of Greek cuisine “soul, elegance, substance, and technique.”  Secretariat General for Information: World Media on Greece-Hellenic Culture Abroad-Greek Cuisine
