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.

If you believe that vegetables are the keystone to a sound diet, and if you believe, as more than a few influential cooks do, that many vegetables are best-- and best prepared— in countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea, this [book Mediterranean Vegetables] may prove to be the best of all possible books. This is a lively reference book that contains a generous number of workable recipes. Here’s a book that’s likely to make the commute from bedside table to kitchen and back frequently.
