I've been searching out Mediterranean based meals for a long time so thought this would be a good addition to my Kindle cookbook collection. But the recipes just didn't jive with me. I think the philosophy is excellent - and I totally embrace it. However, the recipes didn't have ingredients that I would typically buy. This may be a great book for you - but my personal taste just doesn't run to fava beans, boiled octopus or Grouper. It's a personal opinion - so take it with a grain of salt.

Don't be afraid, the recipes are simple and delicious. They take away the fear of cooking fish correctly, and deliciously.

Wonderful recipes. Very easy to prepare. They taste so good you won't want to cook anything else. I recommend using fresh herbs for that fresh herb taste. Yummy!!

I have only used this book twice for meals. I was looking for a better way to prepare brussel sprouts. Most Mediterranean recipes in the book included many of the same ingredients. I used vegs I had on hand but used their preparation methods. Both meals turned out very well. The book includes much information regarding mediterranean cooking. Very informative.

There are some really good recipes in here but not as many as I would have liked. I had read the shorter version of his book earlier, and this is pretty much just lots more info. My husband and I are loving eating the Mediterranean style. We haven't really lost any weight but haven't gained any either.And going on a "diet" wasn't our main goal. Just healthier eating. But my bad cholesterol is down and the good is up!

I found this little book to be helpful and informative. But cooking trout heads? sea urchins? whole octopus? gross. Didn't even sound appealing to me. Some of the pasta and fish dishes I will definitely try out, but really, where am I supposed to buy sea urchins by the boxful? This is a little - 60 page - booklet with some valid reasons to use the 7 Sicilian Superfoods (olive oil, tomatoes, nuts, berries, legumes, fish, cruciferous veggies)to improve your health. Of the 25 recipes (appetizers, first courses, salads, side dishes, and main courses), I would probably enjoy most of them. I am an experienced cook, so they seem easy to prepare and the directions easy to follow. I would have to find a better fish market than my local grocery store for fresh tuna steaks and swordfish, much less whole octopus, lol.
