My review for the Eat Dessert First Ebook May 15th 2021

This is not just a cookbook, but a stunningly compiled example of traditional recipes and products, combined with guided tour of some of the beautiful locations around the Greek Islands. Filled with the reminders of an ancient civilization and the beauty of the Mediterranean.

I will admit to loving desserts although we usually reserve for special occasions, and there are certainly some stunning creations in this cookbook to delight all those with a sweet tooth… such as carrot cake with extra virgin olive oil and cream cheese frosting and healthy dark chocolate tart, pears in grape molasses with a base made with extra virgin olive oil.

For those who have a more savoury taste, desserts are not the only thing on the menu and I can highly recommend the homemade pizza made with traditional Greek ingredients.

Throughout the book there are wonderful photographs that share the outstanding beauty to be found in Greece including Plastiras Lake and the island of Aegina. These link to articles on the main site where you can enjoy them in full.

Importantly this book is also a tribute to the various charities in Greece that make a difference to young an old and they have never been so important as in this last fourteen months.

I recommend that you download this free ebook to sample not just the recipes but the other delights to be found in this jewel of the Mediterranean.

About Eat Dessert First

We are a team of writers, sociocultural researchers, travellers, children’s educators and amateur bakers, based in Athens. What describes us best is that we eat dessert first! But not only… our name symbolises our wish for all the nice and sweet things in life to come first.

Our purpose is to approach aspects of the everyday life that are on our minds, by looking at them in a new perspective and studying them in their historic and cultural evolution… all that through our love for desserts. And of course to discover the history of our favorite sweets! Also, we take a sweet trip every now and then, to meet new places, customs, sights, activities, nature and -what else- little local treats! We don’t forget to exercise too, in order to eat our desserts without remorse…

Given our huge sweet tooth, we wish to learn new recipes, to experiment with new techniques and variations, and of course to share our creations. We also want to discover the roots of our favourite desserts, their influences and their variations around the world.

In a special section we focus on subjects of psychology, social awareness, education, creative activities and much more. But Rupert will tell you all about that along the way!

So, come along on this exciting, sweet adventure… Have a nice trip everyone!

  1. Good morning, Sally. I tried to download this but message said it’s not available on my device – which is just an ordinary kindle. Just as well maybe . . . it sounds like a fun book to have and read.

  2. This book sounds so delicious it’s dangerous! I love sweets, but my husband loses all self control. Lol. I like that it includes more than just desserts, but also a bit of a tour through Greece. That makes the recipes all the more rich. 🙂 Great review.
