Across the Mediterranean, one delicious cuisine gives way to the next. From Spain and Italy, through Greece and Turkey and down to North Africa, the region is rich with deeply delicious food. In Mediterra, renowned chef and author Ben Tish gives the tour of a lifetime. With seven-spice falafel from Lebanon, pork belly gyros from Greece, classic tiramisu from Italy, and grilled smoky sardines from Crete, the full flavors of the region are on glorious display for recipes that work across diets and seasons.
But while each country has its own unique dishes and distinct cultures, there is a distinct Mediterranean signature that brings them all together: hot summers, dry winters, coastal briny winds, alfresco eating, street markets, sacrosanct meal times, and bringing the best out of as many local seasonal ingredients as possible. In this mouthwatering collection, Ben Tish creates outstanding simple, modern recipes whose flavors transport you across the Mediterranean sea with minimal effort in the kitchen, delivering the flavors, sights, and smells right to your own table.
