Olive oil has long been an indispensable ingredient in my cooking, and I cannot imagine being without it. As might be expected, I am extremely fond of Mediterranean food, which I find to be utterly delicious and satisfying. I am sorry to say, however, that I was quite disappointed with the choice of recipes in this book, which presents a very limited view of a great cuisine. Although the text is well written and easy to understand, the same cannot be said of the recipes, which lack clear and detailed directions. The dietary wisdom and practical advice offered by 'Olive Oil Cookery' is good as far as it goes, but in my opinion two other books, 'Low-Fat Lies' and 'The Omega Diet,' explain more fully the science validating the Mediterranean diet.Was this review helpful?
