If there is a cookbook of the year, this [Mediterranean Feast] is it.  A remarkably ambitious work....The subject is vast, the scope of time daunting, but Wright comes across as a cheerful, dedicated scholar who was sorry when he had to stop.  Recipes are written to be accessible to contemporary cooks.
- William Rice, Chicago Tribune


Here’s a bookshelf worth of volumes..that celebrate the region’s diverse cooking traditions ....  No book accomplishes that more impressively than Clifford Wright’s magnum opus “A Mediterranean Feast."
- Malachy Duffy, Bon Appetit
