    Good Introduction to Regional Mediterranean Cooking

    I like the "500 recipes" series of cookbooks from Sellers Publishing and this one features Mediterranean dishes. As with others in the series, there are over 100 base recipes with each one having 3-5 variations to total 500 in all. For example, the couscous salad on page 185 is a good vegetarian meal or side dish as is and includes in the variations adding tuna, apricots, toasted almonds, figs or roasted bell peppers to change the flavor.

    Recipe sections include antipasti, tapas and mezethes; soups, salads, breads, cheese and eggs, pasta, couscous and rice; meat and poultry, fish and seafood, and fruit and desserts. The flavors are varied because as the author states, there is no one Mediterranean diet. There are 21 countries that border the Mediterranean Sea and diets vary between these countries. This cookbook includes a variety of dishes from the main regions.

    From what I could tell in reading this cookbook, most of the ingredients can be found at a larger grocery store and are simple enough for cooks of any level of experience. There are also color photos for some of the recipes.

    I received a copy of this book for review by the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor was a positive review required. If I didn't like the book I'd say so.
