Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Laskin, a chef and author of several other cookbooks, presents in these attractive, small books recipes from a range of Mediterranean cuisines and beyond, many illustrated with full-page color photographs. Among the offerings in Olivesare Tuna in Green Olive Sauce and Tomatoes Stuffed with Spiced Olives. It's somewhat surprising that few of the recipes specify a particular type of olive (other than "black" or "green"), and a glossary of different olives would have been helpful. The recipe choices in Nutsinclude Noodles in Coconut Curry Sauce and Chocolate Macadamia Brownies, and here Laskin does provide a brief glossary of nuts. For larger collections.
