"When I develop my recipes I always look for ways to create what I call the Big Taste. While I enjoy eating simple grilled foods, what interests me when I cook are dishes with a taste that is fully dimensional. What do I mean by Big Taste? I mean food that is deeply satisfying, and that appeals to all the senses." This revised edition of Mediterranean Cooking celebrates the sensuous pleasures and "Big Taste" of cooking in the various styles of the countries surrounding the world's largest inland sea. In more than 150 authentic recipes (75 of them brand new), Wolfert reveals the aromas, flavors, and textures of this bountiful area, which includes coastal France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Morocco, Tunisia, and other neighboring countries. Recipes are indexed by nationality and course for those who wish to serve a complete Mediterranean meal from a particular country or region. Each recipe states the equipment needed and gives approximate times for preparation and cooking. There is also a list of suppliers of ingredients that may not be locally available. Wolfert's culinary expertise, for which she has been hailed by Food & Wine magazine as the "Mistress of the Mediterranean,"is evident in the stylish and informative way she presents each delicious recipe. Among the dishes included in this sumptuous volume are Spinach and Cheese Dumplings with Gorgonzola Sauce, Roast Pork with Oranges, Couscous in the Style of Tangier, and Honey Walnut Cake. In addition to being fresh and delicious, the cuisine of this sunny region is lower in saturated fats and higher in fiber than most other cooking styles. The focus on fruits, vegetables, and grains rather than meat and the reliance on red wine and olive oil are believed to contribute to the long, healthy lives of the Mediterranean peoples. Paula Wolfert's reputation as one of the world's preeminent food writers and cookbook authors, combined with her acute knowledge of the Mediterranean region, makes this book a mandatory addition to the kitchen of anyone who cares about eating well.

Elizabeth David was born into a upper-class family and pursued a rebellious and bohemian life as a student of art and then an actress in Paris, before running off with a married man to Greece and then settling in Cairo, where she worked for the British government. After the Second World War, she returned to England, where she was shocked by poor food into writing first articles, then books on Meditteranean cooking. A Book of Mediterranean Food was published in 1950, inspiring a cookery revolution, bringing new flavours and ingredients to the drab, post-war British diet. Over the next few years, David was to become a major influence on British cooking, yet her classic cookery books show little of the colourful personality behind the public persona. Artermis Cooper, in this refreshing biography, reveals an adventurous and uncompromising personality - a woman with a passion for food, life and men. This is the whole story: of her strong friendships, her failed marriage, tempestuous affairs and the greatest love of her life, told with extensive refererence to David's private papers and letters. 'In this wonderful and creative book, Cooper has brought David to life... she not only writes like an angel, but has done her research with great skill and obvious enjoyment.' Derek Cooper, Sunday Times 'Engagingly well-written, thoroughly researched and documented. One of the delights of Artemis Cooper's book is that it makes you go back, time and again, to the source. And suddenly I will find that I have whiled away the afternoon re-reading, for the sheer pleasure of it, half of Spices or An Omlette and a Glass of Wine.' Frances Bissell, The Times 'Fluent, engaging and astonishingly readable.' Clarissa Dickson Wright, Mail on Sunday 'Artemis Cooper is skilled and wise enough to handle the contradictory sides of David's character without being either censorious or sensational.' Arabella Boxer, The Times Literary Supplement

The first edition was published by Wakefield Press in Australia in 1995 and licensed in 1996 to Chicago Review Press in the USA. This edition has been extensively revised and enlarged by a third and is lavishly illustrated with images from medieval texts. It includes new sections on the medieval table and table manners, and discusses the significance of the medieval banquet through a selection of menus.
