Intensely flavorful and inherently healthy, Mediterranean
food is one of the world's most appealing cuisines.
Mediterranean cooks know how to make eating a pleasure. They
do it simply-with olive oil and garlic; with herbs and
spices; with tomatoes and eggplants, peppers and squash,
figs and peaches, and other seasonal produce. And of course
there is crusty bread and local cheese, the freshest yogurt
and endless wine. In this authoritative and anecdotal
cookbook, award-winning author Martha Rose Shulman captures
the vibrant flavors of the Mediterranean region in more than
500 delicious vegetarian dishes that will appeal to
everyone. The book represents years of meticulous research
gleaned from Shulman's travels through France, Spain, Italy,
the Balkans, Greece, Turkey, North Africa, and the Middle
East. She presents authentic recipes handed down from mother
to daughter for generations, and she offers her own
contemporary variations as well. You'll dine with her in
Greek olive groves, feast on tomatoes and fresh sardines in
Croatia, savor coffee gelato in the streets of Bologna. At
every turn in the road there is a new culinary reward.
Whether you are a vegetarian or a dedicated meat eater,
Shulman's recipes are substantial enough to satisfy any
Included are such tempting creations as Majorcan Bread and
Vegetable Soup, Provenal Chick Pea Salad, Pasta with

Pomegranate. There is also an entire chapter devoted to the
renowned "little foods" of the Mediterranean: tapas from
Spain, antipasti and merende from Italy; meze from the
eastern and southern Mediterranean, and more.
In addition, the book features a glossary of useful cookware
and indispensable pantry staples and the best online sources
for hard-to-find ingredients.
