Review: Modern Mediterranean by Marc Fosh

I have always wanted to travel to the Mediterranean and Marc Fosh has definitely provided me with a small taste for the area. The book begins with a little history about the author and his philosophy regarding fresh, seasonal, and local food. It is one that is admirable, however, living in Canada does provide challenges in creating these recipes using local ingredients.

The way that the book is divided into sections based on a single ingredient is quite intriguing. For example, there are options based on almonds, chocolate, lamb, and olive oil. All of the flavours of the region are explored and celebrated in this Mediterranean cookbook.

    Aw that’s a shame some of these end up being too expensive or hard to find! I agree, they all look super yummy and healthy – two elements I try to incorporate in my diet as much as possible (it’s true, I promise I don’t JUST eat chocolate :P)
