I agree that there are many good recipes you can find on the internet.
I think that many people enjoyed the series 'My Cypriot Kitchen' and it was a shame that this book didn't have that name as most of the recipes are from the Cyprus series, I think. For those that aren't fortunate enough to live in Cyprus but visit the island, the recipes along with the photos bring Cyprus into your home.
I was disappointed with the book in that it was a bit pricey (£17.99) and thought there could have been more recipes and a tad less family photographs in it.
It does give details of places that she visited during the series and we intend to go to some of them on our next trip.
I also have the book, and same as you enjoy it more as a reminder of Cyprus.
Like you, it gave me some ideas of places to visit, and a few years ago we spent a lovely day in Kalavassos, near Limassol which is where the early Cypriot programmes were filmed. There is an abandoned train at the entrance to the village, which is interesting in itself, and it was lovely wandering through the streets and seeing familiar sights. We also stumbled across the villa she used to rent, the gate was open and we were able to see the courtyard and plunge pool that we saw so often on the tv. I must say that Kalavassos is best visited in high season, as we have twice been back, out of season, and it was way less enjoyable.
Nowadays she seems to spend more time at her parents house on the coast at Larnaca, and we have also explored that location and found a lovely restaurant...... I realise I am sounding a tad stalkerish, I can assure you I am not, it's just that we love exploring Cyprus, and it kind of gives you some ideas, as she obviously carefully chooses the best places to show on TV.
We are trying to collect the full set of DVDs of the series (the ones given away with Cyprus Weekly). We have probably about half of them. We have done the rounds of the car boot sales and spent ages sifting through stacks of the 'giveaway' dvds but still missing several.
Does anyone have any of these which they are dying to part with please?
