Overview

Here is the cookbook that will satisfy the most demanding of palates, bring fun into the kitchen and add pleasure and possibly years to your life. The world has long known that the people of the Mediterranean generally live longer and healthier than the rest of the Western world, a fact often ascribed to their eating habits.

In her new book, Jeanette Seaver, a gourmet chef who was born and raised in France, offers almost 200 mouth-watering recipes using delicious traditional Mediterranean-diet ingredients: fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, cereals, olive oil, and fish, with judicious amounts of red meat and poultry.

With over 50 first courses, including 15 original soups, 65 main courses—seafood, meat, and meatless—a wide selection of delectable vegetables and salads, and some 50 fabulous deserts, this richly varied volume is bound to please the novice as well as the most meticulous home chef. Try such dishes as:

Smoked eggplant caviar
Gratin of cod and spinach
Broiled marinated duck breast with grilled peaches
Stuffed zucchini flowers with red-pepper coulis
Moussaka of artichokes and veal
Lemon macaroon torte
Italian pear tart
With ingredients pulled from all corners of the Mediterranean, the recipes may first appear exotic, but they are fast and easy to prepare. The author offers careful step-by-step recipes that ensure the dishes’ success.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Seaver (The [Almost] No Cholesterol Gourmet) offers a delectable feast from the sunny coasts of southern France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco and the Middle East. Despite their distinct cultural identities, these regions share common culinary points: generous use of olive oil; lots of fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and nuts; fish at least twice a week; moderate dairy and poultry; very little red meat; and, happily, wine with meals. In return, Mediterranean-area dwellers are trimmer than their American counterparts and live longer, healthier lives. It's a commonly cited connection (see review of French Women Don't Get Fat, above), and Seaver, associate publisher of Arcade and a frequent visitor to the Mediterranean, says this isn't "a diet book" on the phenomenon. Rather, she offers a cookbook emphasizing "the gourmet rather than the mundane" of the Mediterranean culinary landscape: ingredients should be seasonal and fresh, and meals are meant to be enjoyed at leisure. Classics like gazpacho, bouillabaisse and moussaka appear alongside lesser-known regional dishes like Terrine of Monkfish with Green Sauce, and Pork Loin in Dried Figs Sauce. Some recipes are as simple as Fresh Vegetables with Anchovy Cream, while others, such as Quenelles of Pike or Shrimp, boost the difficulty level, but are explained in enough detail to make them doable. Seaver has created a mouth-watering tribute to a healthy, scrumptious cuisine. (Jan.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
