Description: Greece, Turkey, Italy, France, Spain, North Africa, and the Middle East are all lucky enough to have the shores of the sparkling Mediterranean as their backdrop. These countries conjure up images of olive groves and lemon trees, the aroma of wild oregano, and warm evenings eating alfresco, sipping drinks and nibbling on delicious pieces from meze, tapas, or antipasto platters. Mediterranean dishes can be as diverse as the rich bouillabaisse of France to a simple vegetable couscous from North Africa, all made from fresh ingredients close by: fish from the turquoise waters and fruits and vegetables ripened in the sun.
- A beautifully photographed section describing unusual ingredients found in the pantries of Mediterranean homes.
- An abundance of notes on ingredients used in the recipes and snippets of history related to some of the dishes.
- Detailed double-page features on meze, antipasto, tapas, olives, sauces, dressings, and the making of pasta and pizzas.
- An explanation of the different types of olive oil and when to use each.
Condition: Good condition.
