Do you eagerly grab up newly released cookbooks, but come away disappointed that they all seem to be the same old “Pizza”, “Paella”, “Tzatziki”, “Bacalhau”? Be prepared to have your socks knocked off: Here’s over 40 recipes from PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain) that you won’t find anywhere else. Their names may sound the same as what you’ve seen before, but we guarantee you’ve never tasted dishes as scrumptious or as easy to prepare as these.
These delicious ‘delight your guests and family’ recipes are quick and easy to prepare, use easily obtained ingredients, and, except for the centerpiece Greek dessert, Galaktoboureko, take almost no time to prepare and to clean up afterwards.
You’ll love the Portuguese food presented here. I’ve even included a recipe for ‘Salted Cod’, or ‘Bacalhau’ in Portuguese that’s unusual in both its preparation and its presentation.
Italian food recipes cover the gamut of authentic Italian food recipes from simple soups like Minestrone to complex dishes like Tagliatelline Napoletana. Your family won’t be disappointed.
Who can forget Greek cooking? Your guests will be amazed when you place Chicken Santorini on the table. They will fall out of their seats when you bring in the Galaktoboureko at the crowning moment.
Spain! Ah, Spanish cooking at its finest. Your family will hear the faint strains of a rousing Flamenco as they dive into your preparation of Paella Pico. Of course, you could just as easily captivate their taste buds with the cascade of tempting flavors found only in Chuletas de Cordero con Patatas al Ajillo! An array of Paella recipes points you towards gastronomical heights never before reached at your table. They will love you for it!
