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
contemporary variations as well. You'll dine with her in Greek
olive groves, feast on torecipes handed down from mother to
daughter for generations, and she offers her own matoes 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 appetite. Included are such
tempting creations as Majorcan Bread and Vegetable Soup, Provencal
Chick Pea Salad, Pasta with Ligurian Artichoke Sauce, Greek
Cauliflower Gratin with Feta and Olives, Balkan-Style Moussaka,
North African Carrot "Compote," and Sweet Dessert Couscous with
Citrus and Pomegranate. There is also an entire chapter devoted to
the renowned "little foods" of the Mediterranean: tapas from Spain,
antipasti and merende fromItaly; 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. As Martha Rose Shulman
herself says, "Mediterranean food enthralls me." Readers of this
classic will be enthralled as well.
