Book of the Week: Three Sisters Back to the Beginning


Betty, Eleni and Samantha Bakopoulos bring us their second book– Three Sisters Back to the Beginning– the much-anticipated sequel to “Three Sisters Around the Greek Table.” It is sleek and elegant and reads like a gift. In the hands of the sisters, the classic Mediterranean kitchen of Greece becomes exciting and achievable.

We featured the sisters and their new book in an in depth piece here.

Fast and easy family favorites such as Shrimp Saganaki are balanced with recipes that slow you down, and make you wait with anticipation like Homemade Yogurt and succulent Lamb Shanks. As with their first book, the layout is clean, the recipes are approachable and the food photography is beautiful. Once again the sisters have dished up a poignant and inspiring cookbook.

This time around, readers are taken on a nostalgic journey that documents the magic of childhood and the connection between family, place, and identity as they return to the village in Greece where their grandparents were from and rebuild their family home. Three Sisters Back to the Beginning is both a cookbook and an inspiring art book to be cherished.

    My mom ordered this for me, and it arrived today. I absolutely love their layout and the photos are great!!! As a chef to another chef, I am really impressed by their recipes, especially the baklava french toast. 🙂 Thank you very much for such a great cook book. I highly suggest this book.
