The Mediterranean diet has been especially popular for the last few years due to the fact that it is touted as extra healthy. Peter Minaki, a veteran cookbook author, has taken his expertise in Mediterranean cooking to a higher level by including recipes that are not only mostly healthy, but also can be made in one pot in his cookbook, The Everything One Pot Mediterranean Cookbook: 200 Fresh and Simple Recipes That Come Together in One Pot
This cookbook proves that even busy cooks who don’t want to prepare time consuming meals can prepare mouthwatering food in just one pot.

According to the author, “There are regional differences in what constitutes the Mediterranean diet, but all share an essential common trait: a focus on whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and fish.” What more could anyone want? The recipes included in this cookbook follow these guidelines, and are gathered from all over the Mediterranean. They are easy-to-follow and are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions. Most are fairly easy, so they can be successfully prepared by cooks who are both advanced and beginners,

The book includes an entire section with vegetarian main dishes, and even non-vegetarians will be tempted. However, the chapter that includes Beef, Pork, and Lamb has so many good recipes, that carnivores will have trouble deciding what to make next and will skip the vegetarian choices altogether. Both the Poultry and the fish and seafood chapters are equally appealing, and the queue for trying new dishes from these is getting longer. The chapter on sauces is varied and from numerous countries. And for those who like dessert, there are several good choices.

It is unfortunate that only some of the recipes are pictured; those photographs included are excellent. If it weren’t for the lack of photos, this would be the perfect cookbook. Albeit the lack of photographs, this is truly an excellent Mediterranean cookbooks.
