I recently received this beautiful cookbook from the DK Gift Boutique
Title: Mediterranean Cookbook
Author: Marie-Pierre Moine, Elisabeth Luard and Ghillie Basan
Publisher: Dorling Kindersley
This cookbook combines stunning photography and step-by-step written directions for over 300 Mediterranean Recipes!
This Mediterranean Cookbook is filled with authentic recipes from:
- Middle East
- North Africa
I love the extra resources included in this cookbook:
- Essential Olives and Olive Oil
- Essential Lemons and Oranges
- Essential Tomatoes
- Essential Spices
- Essential Peppers
These resources give you insight into the different types of ingredients and also recommendations for their most suitable uses.
For example – which tomatoes are good for pasta sauces vs. which tomatoes are best for eating freshly sliced.
The Mediterranean Cookbook is broken down into the following sections:
- Mezze, Tapas, and Antipasti
- Pasta, Rice, and Beans
- Fish and Shellfish
- Meat and Poultry
- Pizzas, Pies, and Tarts
- Vegetables, Herbs, and Salads
- Breads and Bread Dishes
- All Things Sweet
There are so many recipes we want to try – my husband LOVES olive bread and there is a great recipe for fougasse aux olives on page 261 I know I am going to be asked to bake!
I also want to try tian de pommes de terre – a dish similar to our scalloped potatoes – but with ingredients like gruyere cheese (YUMMY!).
I love the Pizzas, Pies and Tarts section – so many recipes to try!
Our family loves Greek food – there are recipes for moussaka, souvlakia, tzatziki…
This cookbook is an amazing resource – sure to be a favourite – and an excellent gift idea!
