Greek food, born of the land where sun meets sea, is built on the delicious, healthy pillars of abundant fresh vegetables and fish, olive oil, whole grains, legumes, artisanal cheeses, and fruit—accompanied by an occasional glass of wine. This food’s everlasting appeal is captured in the recipes and gorgeous photographs of Yassou, inspired by the spirit of the word used to greet a loved one or a friend, perhaps when inviting them to share a bite. From beloved mezes like Tzatziki, Fried Zucchini, and Shrimp Saganaki through a menu of stuffed vegetables, soups for all seasons, grilled mains like souvlaki, and savory pies like Spanakopita, these 80 must-make dishes are steeped in tradition and as easy to prepare as they are thoroughly pleasurable to serve and eat. 

  • “Shaily Lipa is the real deal. She’s got soul, she’s got style, and—most importantly—she’s one of the best cooks I know. As much a travelogue as it is a cookbook, Yassou will transport you to Shaily’s Greece with every recipe, photograph, and family story—and it’s a very delicious journey.”
    Adeena Sussman, author of Shabbat and Sababa
  • “Shaily captures the Greek classics with a fresh eye and recipes that are simple, robust, and healthy. Every page brims with bright, beautiful food that will make you want to either run to the kitchen or buy an airplane ticket to Greece.”
    Diane Kochilas, award-winning cookbook author and host of My Greek Table
