Here is what the publisher tells us about this book: 

A cookbook that celebrates the magnificent culinary history of plant-based recipes in Greek culture and champions social justice in the process.

Join Kon Karapanagiotidis at his table in A Seat at My Table: Philoxenia, a beautiful and inspiring Greek vegetarian and vegan cookbook. Featuring more than 100 recipes passed down through the generations, this book will teach you to cook with community at your heart, filled with the knowledge and wisdom of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s (ASRC) inspiring founder and his mother, Sia.
‘Philoxenia’ means to welcome a stranger. It’s a message that pervades Greek culture and cooking. Chapter by chapter, A Seat at My Table: Philoxenia unfolds incredible meals drawn from this powerful philosophy, as well as from the love, hope and resilience that represent Kon’s own grandparents’ survival as refugees.

Learn to make the dishes that line a mezze platter, including fresh tzatziki, golden saganaki and cheese-filled zucchini flowers, or veganize heavier dishes, such as moussaka and spanakopita. There are ample salads to serve up for lunch, highlighting everything from Ancient Greek grains, zucchini and artichoke to goat’s cheese, fig and pomegranate, as well as mouth-watering desserts (think Greek classics, such as loukoumades and baklava, as well as Greek-style coffees).

Every vegetarian recipe includes instructions to make your dishes vegan or gluten-free. You’ll even find tips on minimizing waste and gardening, courtesy of Sia, and Kon’s father, Leo.
