  • [01] Book on olive, olive oil in Chinese

    The seminal Chinese-language edition of the well-known book "Civilisation of the Olive and Olive Oil" debuted this week following nearly three years of efforts to translate the work.

    The 176-page book, authored by Nikos and Maria Psilakis, has already been translated into the major European languages and Japanese. The Chinese edition aims to fill an almost "absolute" void in the Chinese-speaking world for the quintessentially Mediterranean olive tree and its products, as well as showcasing the intricate link between the olive and Greece and Hellenism through the millennia.

    Among others, 130 recipes are included in its pages, using olive oil as the dominant theme.

    Chinese author and philologist Aidong Qu is credited with the translation.
