Reading Greece: Walking Crete

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  A new book, titled “Hikes, Walks, and Rambles in Western Crete: A Guide” was recently published about exploring western Crete on foot.   The useful guide is written by Angelos Assariotakis and Yannis Kornaros and reflects their enthusiasm for the less-trodden paths of their native Crete and a practical approach to walking. As dedicated mountaineers, the two authors have walked and scrambled every step of the paths they suggest in their guide. The guide includes small maps of each of the 51 suggested routes and information tables about the level of difficulty, the terrain, the duration, the availability of the water and other useful information for the lovers of trekking.

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
