Quite good recipes but would prefer pictures to see what the dish should look like!

Good book for those who are serious about their diet. The soups are particularly good. It is not a coffee table book.

I initially encountered this book whilst reading "The Breast Cancer Prevention Diet" by Dr Bob Arnot, Newleaf 1999 (which incidentally is itself a fantastic book). The Mediterranean diet is known to be one of the healthiest diets in the world and is recommended to help prevent breast cancer - just one if its many benefits. Dr Arnot recommended this book, which is wonderful, not only in terms of its delicious, healthy recipes, but also in its evocation of Mediterranean life - the author has spent her life living in different countries in the Mediterranean, which is abundantly clear throughout. The writing style makes this book a joy to read, even when not using it as a cookbook, and the layout is eminently sensible and easy to use. Chapters range from meze and tapas through soups, meat and poultry dishes and sweets. In the chapter on vegetable dishes, each vegetable is dealt with individually in alphabetical order which makes it very easy to incorporate new vegetables into your diet. Every recipe is set in context, with comments about how Mediterranean cooks like to prepare and serve each dish. This is an American book but British readers should not worry about this - there is a really useful page converting between different units of measurement and another translating American names for ingredients into British terms. This really is a fantastic book and I can't recommend it highly enough..

I am dissappointed with this book. There are no pictures to show what the finished meal should look like. Some of the ingredients I have never heard of. I don't think a great deal to it.

The Mediterranean diet features naturally healthy, lusty dishes that please the eye, tempt the palate, and satisfy one's love of robustly flavoured food. This practical and informative book offers traditional recipes that highlight the bold flavours, vibrant colours, and wholesome ingredients of the region's cookery. The dishes are not difficult to prepare, and the fun in the kitchen is equalled by the reward at the table.
Also recommended: "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen: A Culinary Journey through Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan," by Sonia Uvezian. This is a totally unique and masterly volume that showcases a dazzling collection of healthful and imaginative recipes, many of them documented for the first time.
