Med - A Cookbook

Dan Saladino

Claudia Roden's delightful and beautifully illustrated new book conjures up the spell cast by the Mediterranean and its influence on her life-long love of cooking.

The Cairo-born and French-educated writer says: “The smell of garlic sizzling with crushed coriander takes me back to Egypt and the aroma of saffron and orange zest mingled with aniseed and garlic triggers memories of the Riviera”.

Like her earlier classic works, The Food of Italy, The Food of Spain and The Book of Jewish Food - a 25th anniversary special edition of which is now on sale - this new offering seamlessly blends culinary tales with recipes from a master of her craft.

Acclaimed chef Yotam Ottolenghi says: “To read Claudia is to sit at her table with everything simply as it should be. Pull up a chair for the food and stay at the table for the stories”.

Claudia is in conversation with writer, journalist and BBC Food Programme presenter Dan Saladino. His new book Eating to Extinction laments the steady loss of the world's rarest foods as the planet races headlong into the pit of homogenised, globalised fast food.
