Description: Brimming with the originality and joie de vivre of the warm south, Healthy Mediterranean Cooking makes eating the Mediterranean way both a healthy option and an irresistible temptation. Here is the aroma of fresh herbs, rich olive oil and pungent garlic, evoking the conviviality of open-air markets and dock-side cafes.
To the poets and travelers past and present who praise the atmosphere and flavors of the Mediterranean, modern doctors and dieticians have now added their voices. The grains and beans, fresh fruit and vegetables, the high-protein fish, lean meat and poultry, the olive oil and wine that are the staple foods of the lands bordering the Mediterranean sea are now recognized as providing the ultimate healthy diet. Low in cholesterol and saturated fats and high in fiber and vitamins, they also supply an abundance of the agents that are thought to actively combat disease and enhance life expectancy.
In Healthy Mediterranean Cooking, the celebrated cook and writer Rena Salaman has brought together more than 100 delicious, healthy, easy-to-prepare recipes from every corner of the Mediterranean, including not only examples of the well-loved cuisines of France, Italy, Spain and Greece, but also less familiar dishes from North Africa and the Middle East. Greek Olive Bread, Couscous Salad with Peaches, Provencal Seafood Casserole, Penne with Salsa Cruda, Orange and Almond Custardare just a few of the memorable and mouth-watering dishes that are also good for you. Gus Filgate's elegant and enticing photographs of the recipes reveal a cuisine that is as full of color and style as it is of flavor.
