With its vast range of meatless dishes, Mediterranean food is fresh and light, and Claudia Roden aims to communicate the pleasure of cooking and eating the Mediterranean way. This is a collection of 30 recipes, including tunisian grilled mixed salad, Sicilian pasta with artichokes, Spanish mushroom soup with almond and garlic picada, and Greek squid in wine sauce to name but a few. They have been collected from regions of France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Syria and the Lebanon, and are divided into chapters on different kinds of dishes. Claudia Roden has included only those dishes that she has enjoyed the most, and that have proved the most popular with family and friends. Some are classics, and others are recently discovered regional dishes.

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.
Claudia Roden was born and grew up in Cairo, and was educated in Paris before moving to London. From the publication in 1968 of her first book, A New Book of Middle Eastern Food, to her more recent titles, including The Food of Italy and A Book of Jewish Food, she has established a reputation as one of the most distinguished culinary authors and food writers. She has won four Glenfiddich awards, among other accolades, for her enthusiastic and well researched books.
