Vefa Alexiadou literally wrote the book on Greek cuisine with her 700+ page tome, Greece: The Cookbook (previously published as Vefa's Kitchen). It's our Cookbook Club's book for the month of August, and members are already noting that it has a dual purpose—they can use it for weight-lifting while they cook!

All jokes aside, this is truly a comprehensive book on original Mediterranean cuisine. But there's no need to be overwhelmed by the (hundreds) of recipes contained within—the recipes are straight-forward and easy to prepare. While you're waiting for your copy to arrive, we've rounded up 13 Greek-inspired dishes to get you in the groove:
