Clifford Wright proves again in this delectable volume that he is the dean of American authorities on Mediterranean cooking.  The recipes [in Little Foods of the Mediterranean] are as valuable for their authenticity as for Wright’s fascinating notes that explain a rich, diverse food culture.
- John Mariani, author of The Italian-American Cookbook and The Dicitonary of Italian Food and Drink

Clifford Wright has done it again! Not only does Little Foods of the Mediterranean provide hundreds of mouth-watering recipes, it also offers a lively history of their origins. Wright shares with us the centuries-old philosophy of eating that underlies these marvelous little foods, seasoning his text with spicy etymologies along with copious doses of Aleppo pepper and harisa.
