"Grill Italian hooks the cook in the introduction. Who would not want to light the grill after reading the author's description of an alfresco dinner in Sicily ? The recipes are generally on the simple side, relying on the fresh ingredients and herbs for flavor rather than on heavy marinades and bastings. I love the frequent trick of alternating items on skewers with cubes of oil-soaked bread or that of sprinkling on bread crumbs to add texture ? Sausages, onions and oranges skewered together offer a delightful change of pace."
- Florence Fabricant, New York Times


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.
