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
