Kochilas marries lore to lesson and recipe to interview.

We meet a 101-year-old weaver - the best on the island - and taste the combinations of herbs he cooks with and which he believes give him life.

We learn about the life-giving benefits of delicious salads - both raw and cooked - the gorgeous breads and savoury pies that are a part of every meal, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations and the seafood that is at the root of the Ikarian culinary culture.

Filled with mouthwatering recipes and remarkable stories, this book introduces us to food as life, as only the Ikarians know it!
