"Simple, seasonal, and heartfelt. Count me in, Ben." —Yotam Ottolenghi

From the beloved author of Sicilia, more than a hundred mouth-watering Mediterranean dishes from Spain to Syria and everywhere in between

Across the Mediterranean, one delicious cuisine gives way to the next. From Spain and Italy, through Greece and Turkey and down to North Africa, the region is rich with deeply delicious food. In Mediterra, renowned chef and author Ben Tish gives the tour of a lifetime. With seven-spice falafel from Lebanon, pork belly gyros from Greece, classic tiramisu from Italy, and grilled smoky sardines from Crete, the full flavors of the region are on glorious display for recipes that work across diets and seasons.

But while each country has its own unique dishes and distinct cultures, there is a distinct Mediterranean signature that brings them all together: hot summers, dry winters, coastal briny winds, alfresco eating, street markets, sacrosanct meal times, and bringing the best out of as many local seasonal ingredients as possible. In this mouthwatering collection, Ben Tish creates outstanding simple, modern recipes whose flavors transport you across the Mediterranean sea with minimal effort in the kitchen, delivering the flavors, sights, and smells right to your own table.

Ben Tish is the Chef Director of Cubitt House, where he oversees the food offerings across a number of pubs and eateries in London. With a love of Mediterranean food and history, Ben is passionate about recreating the flavors and dishes of his travels in his own home and restaurants.

Ben regularly appears on Saturday Kitchen, Sunday Brunch, and Masterchef, and writes for Delicious, Guardian, Telegraph, Times, Noble Rot and Chef Magazine, among others. He has published four books including Moorish and Sicilia, and he lives with his wife Nykeeta and his French bulldogs in East London. @ben_tish /
