Praise for Modern Mediterranean:

“Modern Mediterranean is a stylish, no-nonsense guide to creating some rather choice staples. . . . The Smile regulars will find a few familiar meals amid the pages, as well as memories of Marden’s fond experiences with certain dishes, how she amended them and made them her signature, and old photographs of her families sprinkled among the recipes.”   —Interview

“This book, by Melia Marden—the executive chef of the trendy Bond Street restaurant the Smile, and daughter of the artists Brice and Helen—is a new favorite of mine. Modern Mediterranean is one of those cookbooks that makes you lust after everything within it.” —The New Yorker

“An intimate, easy-to-follow guide.” —W.com

“It’s a culinary scrapbook of Marden’s favorite recipes.”—Nowness.com

“When Modern Mediterranean landed on our desk, we were just as enamored by the bright, happy colors and gorgeous photographs of chef Melia Marden’s stylish recipes and eclectic home as we were by her fairy-tale backstory.”

    This cookbook by Chef Melia Marden is surprisingly insightful and creative. Throughout the colorful pages, there are so many excellent Greek, Italian, Spanish, and Moroccan recipes! Simple ingredients and simple directions make these recipes easy for the average American cook to replicate at home. I received this book as a gift, and was absolutely delighted by it! I also enjoyed Marden's background stories about spending her summers in Hydra, Greece. A great book to add a little Mediterranean kick to your cooking!
