Product Details


“Nancy Harmon Jenkins is a marvelous writer, a fine reporter, and addicted to travel, people, history, and good food, which makes this book a joy. That it points to a healthful way to eat, incorporating the freshness and clear flavors of Mediterranean cooking, also makes it a daily delight.” —Barbara Kafka, author of Party Food

“Although it’s technically a diet book, this book is so much more—a superbly written examination of Mediterranean food and life and one of the most exciting cookbooks of the year.” —Paula Wolfert, author of The Cooking of the Mediterranean

“A great body of scientific data indicates that a generous daily intake of vegetables and fruits, coupled with low consumption of meat and other animal products, is the basis of a healthy diet. In this book, Nancy Jenkins vividly demonstrates that giving up meat, potatoes, and gravy need not be a sacrifice but rather the beginning of a journey into a far more interesting and healthier world of eating.” —Walter Willett, Chairman, Department of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health

“An essential…. This revised edition of her bestselling title includes updated nutrition information, notes on sustainable agriculture and similar concerns, and more than 90 new recipes.”Library Journal, starred review
