Summary

Mediterranean food expert and James Beard Award winner Clifford Wright presents a mouth-watering collection of recipes for tapas, mezze, antipasti, and other small plates traditional across the Mediterranean region.

The Mediterranean region shares a love of bold flavor and fresh ingredients. Mediterranean Small Plates takes you on a culinary journey, showing you how each country uses the foundational ingredients of olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, onions, and fresh herbs to develop their own unique range of flavors and textures.

In addition to being beautiful to behold and delicious to eat, a diet of Mediterranean dishes has been scientifically linked to good health, including increased life span, improved brain function, better eye health, lower risk of certain cancers, decreased risk of heart disease and diabetes, and reduced inflammation. With small plates, you can easily share an adventurous, flavorful variety of these healthy foods with family and friends.
