#1 NEW YORK TIMES About.com Culinary-Travel DVD
---Makes a Great Gift for the foodie in your life!---
"My #1 choice for a fabulous gift is "A Greek Islands Destination Cooking Class" (DVD). It is one of the most beautiful (and educational) productions I've seen. Cynthia Daddona hosts this cooking-lesson-tour-romantic-interlude from the Greek island of Santorini. This 71-minute DVD is as much a travelogue as it is a cooking video. The videography is beautiful, Cynthia is an engaging host, and the recipes are oh-so tempting. A section of the production is devoted to exploring ingredients, and it's fascinating! If you can't take a trip to the Greek islands this year, this is the next best thing!"

"What a little treasure this DVD is! I was looking forward to viewing this DVD, as I am of Greek descent and have visited the beautiful island of Santorini many times. I also enjoy regional Greek Cuisine and found the
recipes and techniques in this DVD very intriguing and I think easily adaptable for the home chef. The bonus section at the end showcases various cheeses and herbs of Santorini, and is definitely a visual treat for the most die-hard foodie!
Interspersed among the cookery class and food tips are scenes of the natural beauty of the island, and glimpses of a tradional Greek Island wedding. I really liked the personal story and felt like I was experiencing the culture of Santorini. Additionally, the scenery is so gorgeous!!!"

"Watching “A Greek Islands Destination Cooking Class” DVD made me feel like I was on a personal tour with an energetic, warm guide and TV host, Cynthia Daddona. Not only did I get an overview of the main sites of Greece and the beauty of Santorini, I got to participate in a private cooking class. Cynthia’s love for the Mediterranean along with her joy, feel and knowledge for Greece is delightful."
