If you believe that vegetables are the keystone to a sound diet, and if you believe, as more than a few influential cooks do, that many vegetables are best-- and best prepared— in countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea, this [book Mediterranean Vegetables] may prove to be the best of all possible books.  This is a lively reference book that contains a generous number of workable recipes.  Here’s a book that’s likely to make the commute from bedside table to kitchen and back frequently.  Voted Top 10 Cookbooks of 2001 
- William Rice, Chicago Tribune


There are so many interesting flavors and combinations here [in Mediterranean Vegetables].  Having had the honor of eating some of these dishes cooked by Cliff’s own hand, I know how good they really are.  I can’t wait to cook them myself.
