Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I found this anecdote-laden book fascinating, but the recipes required too much time or too many exotic ingredients to be really practical. I got very frustrated. I think you need to be something of a food hobbyist to manage these recipes unless you live near a Middle Eastern grocery. BTW, Wolfert's definition of "Eastern Mediterranean" means Slavic Macedonia and northern Greece, Turkey, the Levant, and the Republic of Georgia. It's her book, she can call it whatever she wants.
Great book, interesting recipes, some 'travel tales'.
