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
  • Soups
  • Eggs
  • 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!
