Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Mediterranean Hot , award-winning author Aglaia Kremezi has brought together two of the most popular trends in cooking today: Mediterranean and Spicy. Chilies and other pungent spices are an important element of Mediterranean cooking, one of the healthiest and most favored cuisine of the '90s. Although the hot, chili and spice-flavored cuisine of Mexico, Asia, and India are well known, delectable hot and spicy dishes are abundant in North Africa, and Turkey, and there are also many traditional chili-flavored dishes in Sicily, Southern France, and Greece.

The 60 recipes include traditional spicy favorites as well as less spicy dishes that benefit from added piquancy. The recipes are easy to prepare and use widely available ingredients. And because their spiciness makes them so favorable without fat, many dishes are low in fat. This enticing collection of recipes is enhanced throughout by the lively illustrations of Linda Frichtel.

Recipes include:

--Couscous with Beef, Almonds, and Vegetables.

--Green Beans with Garlic, Chili, and Cilantro

--Yogurt Sauce with Hot Paprika and Scallions

--Eggplant Salad with Yogurt and Cilantro

--Tomato, Cucumber, and Parsley Salad

--Lamb Chops with Anchovy Sauce

--Spicy Potato Focaccia

--Moussaka with Egg Plant and Peppers

Illustrations by Linda Frichtel. A Book-of-the-Month Club selection
