Moving into another country typically means facing numerous nice little problems for which you do not have clue of how to solve them. Maybe because you do not understand the language, maybe because you do not understand what is at stake at all. So many new things you need to get used to – and the local food is just one o them. Many things that could possibly upset you – or you try to relax, laugh about it and try to integrate it into your life.
All these little things are collected in this book: Greek traditions unknown to us Germans, amusing ex-periences with organizations, services and institutions. Little anecdotes – lively, varied, with a twinkle in the eyes, from a country with a great past and history.
After her successful »Crisis! Crisis! – Diary o a frog« about the Greek and euro crisis, Edit Engelmann describes in “Lemons from Hellas” how the everyday life in Greece is like – including many recipes. Out of the perspective of a German who moved out in order to live the Greek way, served with a comfortable portion of humour, Edit Engelmann describes everyday life in Greece, with many cooking recipes – from the perspective of a German mother who went to live in Greece taking with her a generous dose of hu-mor and composure to be prepared for all the sweet and sour surprises à la Hellenica.
EDIT ENGELMANN was born in 1957 in Hessen. After completing her marketing degree, she worked for several international and national corporations in and outside of Europe. Since 2000 she lives in Greece as an author and mother.
