My Thoughts 

Mediterranean cuisine has always been appealing and this cookbook has many recipes. So many wonderful sounding recipes. 

As a vegan, I was able to find a few recipes I’m excited to make (Corsican Chickpea Salad, Artichoke Bottoms (with vegan mayo), Eggplant and Tomato Marmalade, Moroccan Chickpeas with Preserved Lemons, Stuffed Grape Leaves in Olive Oil, Tabbouleh (I’ve made this for years but listing regardless, because yum, it’s one of my favorite things to make and eat), and Fattush. 

Non-vegans/vegetarians will find so much more. My husband and teens already found a bunch of recipes they’re interested in as well.
