I always felt it would take several lifetimes to research the many facets of Mediterranean cooking--history, languages, influences, the range of culinary resourcefulness and extravagance, and the varied tastes of fourteen countries.  In his monumental work [Mediterranean Feast], Clifford Wright has made a huge contribution.  An astonishing accomplishment.
- Paula Wolfert, author of The Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean


The directions [in Cucina Rapida] are clear and simple and the results are delicious.  In testing some of the recipes from Cucina Rapida I found that Wright lived up to his promises.  The garlic and parsley shrimp was incredibly easy, took less than 30 minutes and provided one of the best meals my family has enjoyed in some time.
