Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking
As more and more people adopt a healthy lifestyle and diet, they are discovering the refreshingly simple cuisine of the Mediterranean. Claudia Roden is one of the culinary world's greatest experts on the genuine food and flavors of the region, and in this beautifully illustrated book she extends an Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking with over 150 recipes that capture the essential qualities of this vibrant cuisine.
The high-fiber, low-fat Mediterranean diet emphasizes the use of a wide range of vegetables and grains, fresh fish and seafood. Here, Claudia Roden has selected a range of main courses, desserts, and side dishes from her extensive travels not only in Europe, but in Mediterranean Africa and the Middle East as well. The recipes include established dishes from Italy, Spain, and France, such as Linguine with Spinach and Pine Nuts, Gazpacho, and Provençal Mushroom Tart, as well as more unusual dishes such as Tunisian Eggplant Omelette and Spicy Walnut Paste from Turkey. In her engaging style, Roden thoroughly explains techniques and ingredients to enable home cooks of every skill-level to prepare these intriguing dishes.
Beautifully complemented by Gus Filgate's evocative photographs, these recipes extend an irresistible welcome to the warming flavors and life-affirming principles of the bright, fresh Mediterranean.
