Mediterranean - Cookbooks

Refine By

Some of the most creative new minds in the kitchen and the most exhilarating new voices in food writing come from the world of Michael Natkin, creator of the wildly popular, indisputably fits both of those descriptions. In "Herbivoracious: A Vegetarian Cookbook for People Who Love to Eat, " Natkin offers up 150 exciting recipes (most of which have not appeared on his blog) notable both for their big, bold, bright flavors and for their beautiful looks on the plate, the latter apparent in more than 80 four-color photos that grace the book. This is sophisticated, grown-up meatless cooking, the kind you can serve to company-even when your guests are dedicated meat-eaters. An indefatigable explorer of global cuisines, with particular interests in the Mediterranean and the Middle East and in East and Southeast Asia, Natkin has crafted, through years of experimenting in his kitchen and in loads of intensive give-and-take with his blog readers, dishes that truly are revelations in taste, texture, aroma, and presentation. A third of the book is taken up with hearty main courses, ranging from a robust Caribbean Lentil-Stuffed Flatbread across the Atlantic to a comforting Sicilian Spaghetti with Pan-Roasted Cauliflower and around the Cape of Good Hope to a delectable Sichuan Dry-Fried Green Beans and Tofu. An abundance of soups, salads, sauces and condiments, sides, appetizers and small plates, desserts, and breakfasts round out the recipes. Natkin, a vegetarian himself, provides lots of advice on how to craft vegetarian meals that amply deliver protein and other nutrients, and the imaginative menus he presents deliver balanced and complementary flavors, in surprising and utterly pleasing ways. The many dozens of vegan and gluten-free recipes are clearly noted, too, and an introductory chapter lays out the simple steps readers can take to outfit a globally inspired pantry of seasonings and sauces that make meatless food come alive. read more


Two of America's most popular authorities on healthy eating and cooking join forces in this inspiring, easy-to-use cookbook. This not a diet book. It is a lively guide to healthy cooking, day-by-day, packed with essential information and, above all, filled with enticing food. Andrew Weil, M.D-author of the best-selling Eating Well for Optimum Health-brings to this perfect collaboration a comprehensive philosophy of nutrition grounded in science. Rosie Daley-acclaimed for her best-seller, In the Kitchen with Rosie-brings to it her innovative and highly flavorful spa cuisine. The recipes are eclectic, drawing from the healthy and delicious cooking of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Asia, among other cuisines. For starters, you might try Grilled Satay or a Miso Pate; for soup, often a meal in itself, a hearty Mixed-Bean Minestrone Stew or a Roasted Winter Squash and Apple Soup with Cilantro Walnut Pesto; a special entree could be the Savory Roasted Cornish Hens with Roasted Garlic or Baked Spicy Tofu with Bean Thread Noodles, Corn, and Mango; for a simple supper, Turkey Burgers or Portobello Burgers; and for the occasional indulgence, a dessert of Almond Fruit Tart or Peach and Blueberry Cobbler. Andy and Rosie do not always agree. When Rosie calls for chicken, Andy offers a tofu alternative; she likes the flavor of coconut milk, whereas he prefers ground nut milk; when she makes a pastry with butter, he suggests using Spectrum Spread. There are no hard-and-fast rules. Lifelong health begins in the kitchen, so this is a lifestyle book as well as a cookbook. In it you will learn from Dr. Weil: - how to make use of nutritional information in everyday cooking- what is organic. and how to buy organic foods- the importance of reading labels and what to look for- sensible advice about eggs, milk, cheese, salt, spicy foods, wine, coffee - the facts about sugar and artificial sweeteners. and from Rosie: - how to get kids involved-from skinning almond read more

What do we eat to maximize our health? For many years health professionals have promoted the benefits of a Mediterranean diet-wher...e olive oil, tomatoes, legumes and grains are staples. People who eat this way have less heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and type 2 diabetes. But how does an American cook incorporate those kinds of ingredients into a daily menu that is also simple to prepare and so tasty that the entire family embraces the change? Healthy Eating for Life is the second cookbook by acclaimed BBC/Masterpiece Theatre actor and author Robin Ellis since he moved from England to the south of France. Known locally in the food markets of Lautrec not for his acting career, but also as "the Anglais who cooks," Robin had developed a passion for simple, healthy food-a passion that fills the pages of this book. It is his bid to inspire more people to eat delicious, home-cooked food as part of a lifestyle that promotes optimal health. Diagnosed in 1999 with type 2 diabetes, Robin has changed the way he eats. Doing so, and adding more exercise to his daily routine, he managed his blood sugar sufficiently to avoid taking medication for six years. He believes that anyone can learn to cook dishes that are simple, delicious and healthy. Recipes include: Chilled Curried Apple Soup; Sweet Potato, Fennel and Smoky Bacon au Gratin; Cauliflower Roasted with Garlic and Coriander Seeds; Turkish Spinach with Rice; Smoky Spanish Fish Stew; Chicken and Leeks with Lemon; Chickpea, Leek and Fennel Curry; Peaches in Honey and Lime; and much more. read more
