Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos, and the other Ionian islands are home to one of the finest cuisines of the Mediterranean. The stomping ground of Captain Corelli and Lawrence Durrell, the Ionians have always held a particular, almost mystical, fascination for visitors, and, for many of the thousands who travel to the region each year, it is the special nature of Ionian cooking that forms an essential and unforgettable part of their experience. Together, the recipes in this book provide a uniqueand tantalizing taste of the variety of Ionian cuisine-from starters and snacks including the ever-popular meat and vegetable pies (pittes) and stuffed artichokes; to main courses such as Kythera-style fish and a unique chicken recipe from the village of Agalá in Zakynthos; and to desserts and sweets including Ithacan chocolate cake and Corfiot sweet potatoes.
