Corfu cookbook could be yours

5th September 2003 at 01:00
Are you one of those travellers who lugs home a bottle of olive oil to try to recapture the flavours of your trip? If so, The Taste of a Place - Corfu is worth a look.

A combination of travel and restaurant guide, phrasebook and cookbook from Wittersham Publishing, it is written by Vicky Bennison, who loves unpretentious, well-prepared, good food and has had a family home on the Greek island of Corfu since her childhood.

The book is the result of her feeling that none of the current guidebooks describes the Corfu she loves, its people and their food. It will tell you the Greek for chips, mulberries and sea urchins. It has the recipe for Yiay 's pelargonium-scented yoghurt cake and the secret of how to get out of bashing your octopus 80 times before you begin cooking.

Use it on your next Greek holiday for advice on choosing tavernas, where to go shopping and how to make the best use of local ingredients.

We have 10 copies to give away to Friday readers. To enter our draw, email friday@, marking your message "Corfu book" or send a postcard with your name and address to: Corfu book offer, Tracey Thomas, Friday magazine (address on page 3).
