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.
- Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and The Greens Cookbook


This vast compendium [Little Foods of the Mediterranean] encapsulates the type of Mediterranean food that I love: simple, tasty, unpretentious, and easy to eat.  Whether they are tapas, meze, or antipasti, they represent Mediterranean street food at its best.  I especially applaud Clifford Wright’s great research into the similarities and the differences among the little foods of the eighteen countries of the Mediterranean Basin.
