Another beautifully illustrated work from a publisher known for its visual presentations, this colorful cookbook introduces everyone's newest favorite cuisine. An introductory section covers ingredients, with photographs of each
one. Then British food writer Woodward presents 12 "classics," from Italian Zuppa di Pesce to Moroccan Chicken Tangine, followed by 120 more recipes for all courses of a meal. There are some Britishisms in the recipes, and this is undeniably a
superficial overview of many diverse culinary traditions; nevertheless, the dozens of photographs and unusual format make it hard to resist. For most collections.

Mediterranean diet has long been recognized as one of the healthiest diets in the world. An ancient cuisine based on our modern food pyramid, with breads and grains and vegetables at the base, Mediterranean recipes focus on the freshest ingredients. The
Classic Mediterranean Cookbook is an illustrated guide to the cuisine of the entire Mediterranean, celebrating the flavors of Egypt, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Tunisia, Turkey, and Morocco. Like all DK Classic cookbooks, key preparation techniques are
demonstrated in step-by-step photographs.
Mediterranean expert and author, Sarah Woodward, organizes the book into helpful sections. She begins with the ingredients--produce, meats, cheeses, herbs and spices--in a vibrant full-color guide with
advice on choosing, preparing, and storing. She then shares 20 classic recipes, the perfect introduction to Mediterranean cuisine, from gazpacho to tsatsiki to paella, each illustrated with a high-quality, full-color photograph. The heart of the cookbook
is devoted to more distinctive recipes, covering more than 120 dishes with clear, non-intimidating instructions, techniques, and an instructional nutritional chart that lists each recipe's calories, fat, and sodium levels.
