What People are Saying About This

As one of the few chefs in America who understands Italy and how Italians eat, Sara Jenkins has always caught my eye and my palette. Olives & Oranges makes clear that she is a gifted and natural cook with olive oil in her veins and blood oranges in her heart. The poetic food and beautiful photos are a vibrant inspiration to cook these disarmingly simple recipes. --Mario Batali

Olives & Oranges establishes Sara Jenkins as a leading light in the post-food-revolution generation, the children who grew up with arugula, free-range chicken, and extra-virgin olive oil. This is a generation that understands the value of eating well and has the confidence to prepare the simplest food with vivid grace and panache. More, please. --Molly O’Neill

Chef Sara Jenkins has produced a wonderful and charming book filled with Mediterranean recipes that will inspire you to cook. She cares greatly about ingredients and shares great tips. And every recipe she gives is a gem. This is a keeper. --Paula Wolfert

Sara Jenkins has a view of food rooted in a broad experience of many worlds. In this book, she focuses that experience on specific delicious dishes from the Mediterranean tradition, in a way that reminds us of how much thought and tradition can be present on a single unpretentious plate. --Adam Gopnik

This is the real thing when it comes to cooking with a tasty Italian flair. The recipes are shown in mouth watering photographs and taste as good as they look. I love the flavorful, chicken dishes, soups, and short ribs. The chicken stock recipe makes superb risotto or soup. The olive oil cake was everyone's favorite for breakfast and dessert. You can plan a week's worth of delicious dinners,not all with meat, that are healthy and easy to make and not expensive.
I also recommend Pure Flavor (recipes from the Pacific Northwest) by Kurt Beecher Dammeier
