    Kochilas' ninth Greek cookbook, a comprehensive celebration of heartfelt Greek hospitality, shares its title with her cooking and travel series that began airing on public television in 2017. Her 160 recipes are divided across 15 sections—dressings, breakfasts, soups, dips, meze, salads, breads, vegetables, beans, grains, savory pies, meats, fish, and desserts, with a closing section on Greek wine and spirits. Kochilas' narrative-instruction style is a bit old-school meets new-school, with many recipes requiring only a handful of ingredients and photos appearing somewhat sparingly—and that's not a criticism. There's a nod to Scandinavian gravlax made with mackerel; the sloppy yianni, which spikes the traditional joe with cinnamon and oregano; and vegetarian moussakas made with butternut squash or artichokes. Lesvos-inspired eggplant dishes abound; pilafs embrace the still-newfangled quinoa; and several recipes featuring gigantes beans will get readers seeking them out online. Syrup made from Greek coffee enlivens bread pudding and baklava, and My Big Fat Greek Mess riffs on the classic English Eton version. Simple, elegant, ready to share.
