The Cooking of the Mediterranean

by Jane Grigson


Grigson is revered as one of the greats of English-language food-writing and this book shows off her literary dexterity. It’s an elegant, eloquent survey of the cooking culture of the Med. Written at a time when international travel was less frequent, this book could transport readers straight to Spain, Italy, Morocco, Greece, and southern France in recipes and prose.
