Claudia Roden's Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking: 150 Vegetarian and Seafood Recipes by Claudia Roden



This is my third cookbook by this author. But since getting these two, my daughter and I stopped eating meat, and we were looking for a bit of culinary inspiration. Well, we have it in Invitation. My daughter was especially thrilled since the book is geared to exactly what we eat: veggies and seafood. The recipes are elegant, creative, uncommon, but completely doable. If only we could get zucchini here in Taiwan!)

Claudia Roden's vegetarian recipes will satisfy every palate, while a chapter on Fish and Seafood will appeal to those who are not completely vegetarian. See all Product description. I rediscovered it recently, followed a couple of recipes very carefully, and the results were a great improvement on my previous improvisations. She is inspirational.

With its vast range of meatless dishes, Mediterranean food is fresh and light, and Claudia Roden aims to communicate the pleasure of cooking and eating the Mediterranean way. This is a collection of 30 recipes, including tunisian grilled mixed salad, Sicilian pasta with artichokes, Spanish mushroom soup with almond and garlic picada, and Greek squid in wine sauce to name but a few. They have been collected from regions of France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Syria and the Lebanon, and are divided into chapters on different kinds of dishes. Claudia Roden has included only those dishes that she has enjoyed the most, and that have proved the most popular with family and friends. Some are classics, and others are recently discovered regional dishes.

This is my third cookbook by this author. _The Food of Italy_ is very good, and I have several time-worn favorites in _A New Book of Middle Eastern Food_. But since getting these two, my daughter and I stopped eating meat, and we were looking for a bit of culinary inspiration. Well, we have it in _Invitation_. My daughter was especially thrilled since the book is geared to exactly what we eat: veggies and seafood. The recipes are elegant, creative, uncommon, but completely doable. (If only we could get zucchini here in Taiwan!) They tend toward the light side - we avoid stodgy food when we can - using fresh ingredients artistically. This book had me daydreaming of home entertaining again, the kind with style and flair. Some of the recipes that grabbed my attention: Lentil and Spinach Salad, Spicy Walnut Paste, Brown Lentils and Rice with Caramelized Onions, Couscous with Roast Vegetables, Eggplant Omelet, Salsa Verde, Fish Soup with Saffron and Cream. We try to avoid sweets, but there is a seductive photo of Sauteed Fruit with Almond Custard that sends out a siren call every time I open to that page (201, if you want to stop there first). The book includes expertly composed photographs, has generous margins and comfortable type, and is overall a high-quality volume as regards design, paper, printing, and binding. If any of this strikes a chord with you, this book should be a winner for you, too.

Very nicely photographed with recipes for clean eating. History of Mediterranean diet as well as definitions of cuisine included. Nice reference book and easy to grab off the shelf when looking for interesting dishes to make.

This was a gift to my sister. She requested it as she had taken it out of her local library and wanted her own copy.

The book written by Ms. Roden is a very good book containing interesting recipes, but I do not consider it as Mediterranean. It is more North African. Olive oil, garlic and fish are the three thingns that symbolyse the region. They lack in the book. I hope that they will appear in the next printings. If needed; I am ready to assist with recipes.
