America's Test Kitchen is the trusted guide to cooking and eating the Mediterranean Way.
Take full advantage of the proven health benefits with this comprehensive cookbook packed with 500 inspired, foolproof recipes. Authentic dishes like beet tzatziki, lamb tagine, brothy rice with clams and Moroccan chicken pie. Bright Flavors and readily available ingredients of the region mean this is food at its best, good for you, great-tasting and suprisingly easy.
A thorough yet approachable exploration of the entire Mediterranean: A wider, more inclusive approach and incorporated foods from countries all around the Mediterranean Sea, including Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, and Morocco.
Relies on ingredients from the supermarket: Standard supermarket ingredients and plentiful ingredient information ensures that the recipes are accessible.
Detailed ingredient information in "All Abouts": For larger categories of ingredients, such as salad greens, grains, and fish, we've devoted a full page spread to thoroughly explaining each item individually.
Nutritionals for every recipe: We include nutritional information for every recipe, and also set specific nutritional guidelines for every category. (For example, every fish recipe will have fewer than 750 calories, and fewer than 8.5 grams of saturated fat.)
Chapters are based on the Mediterranean Diet pyramid: You'll find large chapters devoted to Beans and to Vegetables, the Seafood Chapter is larger than Poultry and Meat, and the Fruits and Sweets chapter, while shorter, is packed with recipes you can truly feel good eating.
Recipes include Spiced Baked Rice with Potatoes and Fennel, Tagliatelle with Artichokes and Parmesan, Orzo with Shrimp, Feta, and Lemon, Za'atar-Rubbed Chicken, Greek-Style Braised Pork with Leeks, and Orange Polenta Cake.

"More than 6,000 Amazon shoppers have sung its praises, with one commenting, 'This is without a shadow of a doubt the best cook book I have ever owned.' It doesn't get more glowing than that, folks.” -- USA Today
"America’s Test Kitchen has created the definitive guide to Mediterranean cooking. Although brimming with amazing recipes, this cookbook has so much more. This book opens with a concise overview of the Mediterranean diet and meal planning. The authors proceed to five-hundred mouth-watering recipes that require mostly easily obtained ingredients and cover every aspect of the meal...Many of the recipes are vegetarian and are clearly marked as such, as are quickly prepared recipes. Almost more significantly, the text is simply packed with additional information. The notes dispersed through the book contain valuable information for those wishing to ensure a good outcome and learn more about the intricacies of choosing ingredients and cooking techniques. The large, glossy pictures of the finished product typically found in cookbooks are traded for smaller pictures of the end product and important preparation details. Furthermore, nutritional information for all recipes is contained in an easily read chart at the end of the book. For those looking for the one book they need to master Mediterranean cooking, this is it." -- San Francisco Book Review
