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.
- John Mariani, author of The Italian-American Cookbook and The Dicitonary of Italian Food and Drink


"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
