You’ll find a wide range of creative dishes here, with more than 500 fresh, flavorful recipes from Italy, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, and Lebanon. Many are fast enough to make on a weeknight, using ingredients available at your local supermarket.
A thorough yet approachable exploration of the entire Mediterranean: A wider, more inclusive approach and incorporated foods from countries all around the Mediterranean Sea, including Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, and Morocco.
Relies on ingredients from the supermarket: Standard supermarket ingredients and plentiful ingredient information ensures that the recipes are accessible.
Detailed ingredient information in "All Abouts": For larger categories of ingredients, such as salad greens, grains, and fish, we've devoted a full page spread to thoroughly explaining each item individually.
Nutritionals for every recipe: We include nutritional information for every recipe, and also set specific nutritional guidelines for every category. (For example, every fish recipe will have fewer than 750 calories, and fewer than 8.5 grams of saturated fat.)
Chapters are based on the Mediterranean Diet pyramid: You'll find large chapters devoted to Beans and to Vegetables, the Seafood Chapter is larger than Poultry and Meat, and the Fruits and Sweets chapter, while shorter, is packed with recipes you can truly feel good eating.
Recipes include Spiced Baked Rice with Potatoes and Fennel, Tagliatelle with Artichokes and Parmesan, Orzo with Shrimp, Feta, and Lemon, Za'atar-Rubbed Chicken, Greek-Style Braised Pork with Leeks, and Orange Polenta Cake.
