Description

DISCOVER THE FLAVORS AND TRADITIONS OF NORTHERN MACEDONIA

The cuisine of Northern Macedonia is a rich mosaic of influences from the Mediterranean and Middle East, and the neighboring countries of the Balkan Peninsula. Known for its opulent family meals, the regional dishes play important symbolic roles in local traditions and family celebrations. Macedonia: The Cookbook is a love letter to Macedonian culture, and a cuisine deeply rooted in its land and traditions. Through over 100 mouthwatering recipes for mezze dishes, salads, soups, fish, poultry, meat, vegetables, and delicious sweets and preserves, chef and food writer Katerina Nitsou shares the authentic flavors and wisdom brought along with her family from the mountainous villages of Northern Macedonia, recreated and adapted in her North American kitchen. Coupled with beautiful photography of the food, people, and landscapes of Northern Macedonia, this cookbook captures the country's essence and belongs on the kitchen shelf of every foodie.

About the authors

Katarina Nitsou spent her childhood in the kitchen helping her grandmother, mother, and aunts prepare meals using fresh herbs and vegetables from the family’s prized garden. Growing up in a large Macedonian-Canadian community in Toronto, she was immersed in the Macedonian culture through language, dance, and celebrations. She began writing about traditional Macedonian cuisine long before she completed her training at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. She honed her recipe writing skills in the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen and developed her cooking style working as a food stylist, caterer, and private chef in California. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and two young children, whom she is teaching to cook.
