Many of our interviews dedicated to food and cooking inevitably touch on the cuisine of the Mediterranean, but a handful are entirely dedicated to the region.
Cook and best-selling author Diane Seed chooses her best books on Mediterranean cooking, recommending cookbooks on Sicilian, Moroccan, Middle Eastern, Greek and Turkish cuisine. Interviewed as a pair, Diane Farr Louis and June Marinos focus exclusively on Greek cooking. Ruth Rogers, co-founder of the River Café restaurant, recommends her best books on Italian food. Elizabeth Luard chooses the best books on French cooking and the cook Samantha Clark her best books on Spanish and Moorish cooking. She also tells us how her travels around the Mediterranean have inspired her.
