My favorite [of the cookbooks reviewed] is Cucina Rapida, a delicious discovery for lovers of Italian food.  Most of the recipes can be done in 30 minutes or less, and the flavors are forthright.  I’ve cooked a lot from this book since it came out in early summer and have yet to be disappointed.  The recipe for Linguine with Shrimp, Spinach, and Lemon is bright-tasting, a memorable supper that I will make again for my family or for casual entertaining.

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.
