It takes true talent to write a cookbook that will appeal to both neophytes and experts, vegetarians and meat-lovers. For the tenderfoot in the kitchen, this personal introduction to Mediterranean food delivers memorable preparations you'll make over and over. For the expert, it's hard to believe that finally someone has put all our favorite recipes in one place. For the vegetarian, these are delicious all-vegetable recipes. For the omnivore, such as myself, it was two days after reading the book that I realized there were no meat recipes. That's the marraige of a great cuisine with a great cookbook writer. (Clifford A. Wright, winner of the James Beard/KitchenAid Cookbook of the Year and the James Beard Award for the Best Writing on Food in 2000 for A Mediterranean Feast)
