Olia Hercules

Counting Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson among her fans, Olia Hercules certainly knows a thing or two about good cooking. Originally from Eastern Europe, her recipes tend to take their inspiration from that corner of the world – and “Kaukasis” is no exception.

From Turkey and Greece to Georgia and Azerbaijan, each page explores dishes from the Caucasus region where distinctive European and Asian flavors merge to create a completely unique cuisine. Think spiced vine-wrapped dolma, nut-infused plov and a whole range of lesser-known but mouthwatering desserts.
