This book [Mediterranean Feast] is an impressive original study of the cradle of food civilization and marks an important achievement in the field of culinary history.
- James Beard Foundation Book Awards Committee, May 2000


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
