Mediterranean Vegetables is a great reference book that will be invaluable to any chef’s library.  I am especially glad to have it in mine.
- Jean-Georges Vongerichten, chef and co-author of Simple to Spectacular


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.  Voted Top 10 Cookbooks of 2001
