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.
- Jacques Pépin, chef, cookbook author, and public television show host


Cucina Paradiso is a cookbook, not some dry, dull gastronomic text.  The recipes are seductively written, and powerfully appealing.  And Wright’s refreshing lack of arrogance...is a rarity among food writers today.
- Robin Mather, The Detroit News
