Littered with a charming personal narrative and spectacular photography of breathtaking coastlines, delightful village life in Greece and mouth-watering dishes, A La Grecque stirs a yearning for the Mediterranean and the alluring flavours of its cuisine.

Each year she travels to Greece to spend time living a simple, uncluttered village life.
