Mediterranean Summer Table: Timeless, versatile recipes for every occasion & appetite

We rated this book:


Mediterranean Summer Table written by Kathy Kordalis is a recipe book focused on Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Kordalis offers a variety of recipes from small appetizers to larger entrees. She includes vegetarian, seafood, and meat-focused dishes. Kardalis’ inspiration for her recipes was to have light and simple yet quality Mediterranean food that can be enjoyed particularly in summer. One would likely appreciate how the book offers inspiration for one to make a full menu. Kordalis’ includes many pictures in her recipes, which makes it much easier to visualize the food.

While each recipe appears to be nutritious and hearty, there isn’t anything that jumped out and was particularly special. It seemed like just another Mediterranean cookbook. One of the many great things about the Mediterranean diet is that it is practical and easy. A good portion of the recipes were extravagant and not conventional for a busy professional. This would likely be a book to pull out when hosting a nice dinner but not one that would be utilized for daily or even weekly inspiration.
