Something else I love about this volume is the huge selection of Spanish, French, and Italian classic dishes to have in your repertoire. Also listed are compatible wines, intra-country regional specialties, and background information from all over the Mediterranean. I could easily host an appetizer party of Spanish tapas, French hors d'oeuvres, Greek mezes, etc. from this book. What I've tried so far has been outstanding, and so many of the other recipes look outstanding too. Included are recipes for French bouillabaisse, Italian braised and stuffed beef roll (this one definitely wows), Greek calamari-rice salad, Lebanese baked eggplant, Spanish pork tenderloin with figs and sherry, Spanish flatbread with chard and Manchego, and Turkish lamb stew over an eggplant-cheese sauce.
The recipes use healthful ingredients; techniques are not complicated or pretentious. Very happy with this book. Thanks, Williams-Sonoma!
Since then I have bought several copies and given them to family and friends.
I have yet to find a recipe that did not taste absolutely fabulous!! It stays in my kitchen on the bookstand ready to be used at moments notice. The other cookbooks are on the shelf.
Definately recommend this cookbook!!

THOUGH A GOOD COOKBOOK, about 1/4 of them are a little on the excentric side and a little complex. but overall it is a good cookbook.Published on October 6, 2013 by Fred Stephen
