This is a great cook book of a very popular area. I must admit I have not used any of the recipes, however I am very familier with many of them and the author makes it easy to follow, even with the difference in names for certain things than those used in the US, for example eggplant and aubergines.
There are plenty of illustrations and does explain some things not found in other books. Like preparing grape leaves for Dolmathes Avgolemono--Stuffed Vine Leaves with egg and lemon sauce. Many of t

This cookbook on Mediterranean cooking includes 250 recipes providing an almost encyclopedic overview. Despite Claudia Roden's expertise and reputation, I find this book to not be nearly as good as her much later book "Arabesque; A Taste of Morocco, Turkey & Lebanon". This book includes many recipes for stews, tagines and the like which I found too sweet and fatty. I would recommend cooks review the recipes and adjust them to suit their personal taste.

Recommends it for: lovers of traditional but not the most obvious trad.
Cookbooks like these are so totally out of fashion nowadays... A paperback?? ...No Photos???? Well, i've had this book for years now and i find it such a wonderful, personal conglomeration of traditional Mediterannean recipes,from the rustic to the more festive....Syrian Fish with Tamarind, greek leeks , kibbeh, Catalan recipes....its nearly all worth just trying out she never misleads you , iv'e found. Its all fairly simple and SO tasty...
