$40.00 Inc GST

Ela! Ela! is a collection of recipes and stories from cook and food writer Ella Mittas. Inspired by her time working in a village in the mountains of Crete and the hot, loud streets of Istanbul, as well as her Greek heritage, they represent a journey of food, culture and belonging. These simple, comforting recipes are a mix of things Ella saw, ate and was taught on her travels, though years of cooking them have made them something more her own. Above all, they represent community: the reason Ella ever wanted to cook at all.

An original, heartfelt journey through food, culture and belonging by standout young Anglo-Greek writer and cook Ella Mittas.
