Claudia Roden is one of the culinary world's greatest experts on the genuine food and flavors of the region, and in this beautifully illustrated book she extends an "Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking" with over 150 recipes that capture the essential qualities of this vibrant cuisine. The high-fiber, low-fat Mediterranean diet emphasizes the use of a wide range of vegetables and grains, fresh fish and seafood. Here, Claudia Roden has selected a range of main courses, desserts, and side dishes from her extensive travels not only in Europe, but in Mediterranean Africa and the Middle East as well. The recipes include established dishes from Italy, Spain, and France, such as Linguine with Spinach and Pine Nuts, Gazpacho, and Provencal Mushroom Tart, as well as more unusual dishes such as Tunisian Eggplant Omelette and Spicy Walnut Paste from Turkey. In her engaging style, Roden thoroughly explains techniques and ingredients to enable home cooks of every skill-level to prepare these intriguing dishes. Beautifully complemented by Gus Filgate's evocative photographs, these recipes extend an irresistible welcome to the warming flavors and life-affirming principles of the bright, fresh Mediterranean. Claudia Roden was born and grew up in Cairo, and was educated in Paris before moving to London. From the publication in 1968 of her first book, "A New Book of Middle Eastern Food," to her more recent titles, including "The Food of Italy" and "A Book of Jewish Food," she has established a reputation as one of themost distinguished culinary authors and food writers. She has won four Glenfiddich awards, among other accolades, for her enthusiastic and well researched books.

Scientific evidence accumulated over decades validates the idea that a plant-based dietary pattern, such as the traditional Mediterranean way of eating, promotes health and plays an important role in risk reduction and prevention of several chronic diseases. One of the great advantages of the Mediterranean diet is that it can be easily adopted by other cultures because it is flexible and highly palatable. The Mediterranean Way of Eating: Evidence for Chronic Disease Prevention and Weight Management offers evidence-based information about an enjoyable, healthy way of eating that has stood the test of time, along with practical suggestions for incorporating the Mediterranean diet into your daily life. The first part of the book provides a brief history of the Mediterranean region and its different dietary influences. It discusses shared and unique foods in the coastal regions, and recent influences of processed foods and fast foods. It also presents scientific information on critical nutrients (macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants, and fiber) in foods found in the Mediterranean diets, how they function in the body, and why they are essential to health. The authors review the major chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers, and examine how a Mediterranean-style diet may help reduce risk or prevent these diseases. The second part of the book addresses the protective effects of foods and food components, discussing how Mediterranean diets may confer health benefits for reducing disease risk and managing weight. It examines the evidence-based health benefits for each of the food groups—such as fruits, vegetables, grains, fish, meat, dairy products, plus alcohol—along with suggestions for using the foods as part of a healthy diet. The last part of the book focuses on how to move toward a Mediterranean-style diet in your own life, eating at home or dining out, offering effective strategies for implementing the dietary changes.
