"Nancy Harmon Jenkins is a marvelous write, 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
"Nancy Harmon Jenkins's new book is an irresistible invitation to share the healthiest diet in the world. It has one alluring recipe after another, each one fragrant with the fresh aromas of the ingredients love the most: fish right out of the water, ripe vegetables from open-air markets, herbs from the garden. This book makes an overwhelming argument that the things that taste the best are good for you." -Alice Waters
"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
