Awesome photos, video tips, and proven recipes – just three reasons you’ll definitely fall in love with this book!
Trust us, this book will turn your ideas about e-cookbooks upside down!
If that's not enough to convince you, here are seven more reasons:
- The main benefit of any cookbook is the recipes (you buy it to cook food, right?). And in "Falling in Love with Mediterranean Cuisine" you are guaranteed to find both traditional time-tested recipes and contemporary ones that are already well-loved by professional chefs and nutritionists.
- High-quality photos will give you a clear idea of how each dish looks. These photos are guaranteed to get you inspired and whet your appetite.
- In the unique table of contents the title of each recipe comes with the time needed to cook it, and the level of difficulty. So you'll know for sure if a particular dish is right for the moment without even opening the recipe.
- Video tips are provided for processes which require experience. You'll learn how to cook like a true chef and get the best results!
- You’ll find useful hints in the margins of the recipes – everything you should know about the choice of products, the cooking techniques, the professional secrets of chefs, storing the prepared dish, and more.
- The book design deserves special mention. Each section is color-coded for easy navigation, and ingredients and step-by-step instructions are on one screen – you won't miss a thing!
- We’ve put cross-references in the recipes – if a recipe matches with another dish in the book, or a sauce accompanies it, or there's a helpful tip in the "How to...?" chapter, you'll find a link to it right in the recipe. Pretty handy, right?
Once you pick up this book, you'll never settle for less again!
You'll discover that cooking can be a real pleasure! And the cookbook itself is worthy of just flipping through it and enjoying it!

I've been really interested in the Mediterranean Diet lately, but there are so many cookbooks out there that it's hard to know which one to choose. I was pleased to see this available on Netgalley and clicked on it without much consideration--I just had to read it.
It's wonderful! I love the photos that accompany the recipes (one of my pet peeves is blocks of black text in cookbooks without pictures of the finished products) and that it not only tells you how long it takes to cook each recipe, but tells you how many it serves, nutrition facts, AND the difficulty level of each.
I can't wait to work my way through these--this looks like the type of cookbook that I'd come back to again and again and would recommend to others.
Thanks so much to BooksGoSocial for making this book available to review on Netgalley.
Very nice cooking book with good selection of recipes. Liked the conversion chart, mention of some nutritional values (not a lot of info but the most basic one).
Can’t complain to be honest, for me it was more than enough information, structure and chosen recipes.
This recipe book is so beautifully laid out, easy to follow and full of so many delicious sounding recipes! It’s very pleasing to the eye inside and has some wonderful pictures of the dishes for inspiration!
I have not read all the recipes because I intend to use them as a reference whenever I need to find a dish that is easy and quick. This book, however, ticks all the boxes for me, in terms of cheap and wholesome recipes that are really good for your health, I have not made any yet, but I plan to because they seem easy to make as well as being delicious, but having looked through the cookbook I am convinced it is a treasured reference that I will refer to often. As such, I highly recommend the book.
I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is a helpful book!
There are lots of pictures as well as some video tips. There's a variety of recipes from seafood, pastas, salads, and chicken dishes. The recipes are thorough and give clear instructions. This is a good book for anyone wanting to dive into the Mediterranean diet but aren't sure how to get started.
Overall this is a nice find!
I have friends who are follow all sorts of eating plans and several are really into Mediterranean
food right now, so this was a great read for me to find a few recipes that I can make for when they come over. I even found a few that sound like keepers for the hubby and I.
This book has a wide range of recipes and you will surely find at least a few that you cannot live without trying. Healthy fats, good food and friends, with this cookbook, I have my Mediterranean friends covered.
A great cookbook with some great recipes. I love learning about other countries cuisine and this one works for me. The photos are wonderful and made me hungry, the recipes are well written and easy to follow and the hints they give are always helpful.
I will be working my way through this book as there are so many recipes I do want to try. It uses ingredients that are familiar and easily obtainable. Healthy, tasty, feel good foods and worth trying as many as possible. YUM!
I love a cookery book but usually they are filled with recipes requiring a lot of fancy ingredients and fancy cheffy tricks. Not so this one, we made some of the soups (they were easy and delicious) and will be trying out many of the other recipes in due course. The pictures are a nice touch.
Excellent Mediterranean diet cookbook with pictures showing what the recipe should look like. I have tried several recipes and love how easy they are to make with ingredients that I have in my home.
I LOVED Mediterranean cuisine. I've grown up with it, it's by far my favourite and I'm always looking for new tips and tricks to make it better. This book had everything I need in a cookbook for me to enjoy it, simple instructions, food I actually want to eat and pictures.
An interesting collection of accessible recipes created around the principles of the Mediterranean Diet: less processed foods, more vegetables, less meat, etc. The recipes are graded from super easy to more effort, and all seem very doable. The photos are lovely and give a good impression of what you're aiming for.
Thank you to Netgalley and BooksGoSocial for the opportunity to read this ARC. #netgalley
This is one of the best organized cookbooks I've ever seen. In the beginning it lists every single recipe. Across it says the time amount it takes and then next to it whether it's easy, super easy, not so tricky and so on. It further breaks down the discussion of what Mediterranean diet is for those who are not familiar with it. Then you can find all the recipes, almost all of them have photos of the food. This is a great book for someone who's not familiar with the Mediterranean food. It's an excellent book I think for someone who's a beginner.
I don't follow any died, I just love eating and trying out different recipes. I love that the recipes are easy to follow and don't use any fancy or expensive ingredients. So far I tried the Greek lemon chicken soup and the chicken with mushroom sauce. Both of them were highly enjoyed by my family! Delicious!
Thank you NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for allowing me access to this book. I definitely “fell in love” with this cookbook. The recipes are awesome, the simplicity of the recipes are perfect, and the pictures are mouthwatering. Will have a hard time figuring out which to cook first. I love cookbooks and yours rate right up at the top …
I love Mediterranean food and have been trying to make it the foundation of my everyday diet for a while. This cookbook is great option for anybody looking to incorporate the principles of Mediterranean cooking into their daily diet, using reasonable, accessible ingredients. Some are very simple, some are more complicated and this is clearly labelled in the contents page which is wonderful when scanning through. I've never used a digital format of a cookbook before but the images and layout work really well on my ereader. The dishes are linked on the contents page which is very cool, though I will say that the links are sometimes not very responsive. It's not really an issue though as you can just scroll the page number along to the recipe you want, and of course if you have a hard copy it's not an issue at all.
I've tried the chicken orzo dish and the Greek lemon soup. Both very simple but delicious and I appreciated that there were little tips about storing food as well as some information on the health benefits of the lifestyle which could be great info for a beginner.
I would definitely recommend this as a workhorse cookbook to help with inspiration for regular delicious meals that you can prepare and eat as part of your everyday life.
Everyone knows that a Mediterranean diet is healthy. Fall in Love with Mediterranean Cuisine: The Ultimate Mediterranean Diet Cookbook with Pictures for Beginners and Gurus lets everyone know that a Mediterranean diet is also delicious. This cookbook includes delicious recipes that are easy to follow, as well as mostly easy to prepare. The ingredients called for are available at most larger grocery stores, so there is no reason to need to go to specialty stores to make the dishes. The cookbook includes beautiful photographs that make it difficult to know which dish to make first. The book also includes information on preparing and storing some foods, which is helpful.
One thing that is missing is vignettes or information from the author at the beginning of each recipe. While this isn’t a crime, and doesn’t make it a no-go cookbook, it would have been nice. It’s always a good thing to find out a little about how the author feels about the recipe or how it came about, etc., or helpful hints for those preparing the dish. While the recipes are excellent and turn out well, the book seems a bit impersonal. I still like this cookbook and will use it often, however, because there are dozens of excellent recipes that I want to make.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
I feel like I took a trip to Greece. This is a packed full book and I enjoyed it so much.
Generous amount of recipes and the format was layered and interesting.
The photos weren't the most stunning I've seen in a cookbook but they did the job. It felt like a lot of stock photos.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review Fall in Love with Mediterranean Cuisine by Bernetta Parris.
I received this book from the publisher through Netgalley for review and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Author has written a book with a fine example of traditional and contemporary recipes. Including the method with clear instructions and a gorgeous photo makes for a cookbook you will use and recommend to others. My review copy will get repeated use. Highly recommend to home cooks of any level as she lays out the instructions so concisely.
Fall In Love with Mediterranean Cuisine is the perfect road to healthy and delicious recipes. The author starts with an introduction that includes advantages and of the Mediterranean diet, misconceptions and truths. I found the information, particularly the research. helpful. The cookbook includes a variety of soups., fish and seafood, poultry and meat, vegetables and beans, rice,grains and pies, salads and sauces, and ends with helpful tips for everyday cooking. Included with each recipe is exceptional photography, prep time, level of difficulty and nutritional info. This is a stand-out cookbook for healthy,, gorgeous meals. A book that is for the beginner or experienced cook. I am ready to get cooking. Thanks to Netgalley, publisher and author for the digital copy of this book.
Fall in Love with Mediterranean Cuisine by Bernetta Parris. I loved the Cookbook with the pictures and the recipes. Very easy to follow on ebook. I will buy the hardcover book. I have not tried any recipes yet but I love the chicken recipes and the kabob recipes. I cannot wait to try them.
These recipes are looking delicious. It helps though that there is a photo in every one, especially if you're like me that don't know how to cook properly! I loved that in every recipe had tips, and tricks, and nutrition facts. Although some recipes aren't correct (example the tradition greek lemon chicken soup is more watery. Or Tzatziki doesn't have mint, but basil. I am Greek after all!). Great add on that in the end of the book, it has a kitchen conversion chart. Overall great book.
I am a big fan of Mediterranean cuisine. This book includes both modern and traditional recipes. I love how the recipes are very easy to follow. The best part is that it mentions the difficulty levels of the recipes, nutrition facts and the PICTURES!!
Definitely going to try the vegetarian recipes from the book.
Thank you Netgalley and publisher for the arc.
few of us will be immune to the message that the Mediterranean diet is both healthy and nutritious, and this is a book that really celebrates and embraces this. It is a real celebration of Mediterranean cuisine, and it certainly doesn't scrimp on the olive oil!
Before reviewing, I wanted to try one of the recipes, and the one that appealed to me most was ' Eggplant Rollatini with Ricotta & Basil Pesto', and I can testify it is 100% as delicious as it sounds!
The recipes usefully come with information relating to calories counts as well as macro breakdowns for each recipe.
The book will satisfy your savoury, rather than sweet, tooth, with sections: 'soups', 'fish and Seafood', 'Poultry and Meat', 'Vegetables and Beans', 'Pasta, rice, Grains and Pies' and 'Salads and Sauces'.
Overall I would recommend this book to all those who love their cuisine with a healthy does of olive oil!
My thanks to Netgalley, author and publisher for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an advance copy.
Tried And Tested…
A beautifully formatted cookbook complete with full colour photographs, detailed recipes and hints and tips aplenty. Mediterranean cuisine, tried and tested from traditional to contemporary for every occasion and for every day fare. Enjoyable to browse and functional to use.
Trying to get into cooking more Mediterranean diet foods so I decided to peruse this book. The pictures, layout of ingredients, steps, and tips have great flow. Love that it rates the ease of cooking each recipe so I can work my way up to more difficult dishes as I go. While I have not tried cooking these yet, I have a list of recipes I am excited to work my way through.
Fall in Love With Mediterranean Cuisine by Bernetta Parris is a great cookbook for those beginning a more Mediterranean way of eating for health or pleasure. It contains a wide variety of traditional and newer recipes that fit into the Mediterranean WOE with simple, beautiful pictures and helpful, specific recipe directions. I love that it also included nutritional information for each recipe as well as additional helpful tips one might need.
I would have loved to have a bit of info on what specific area the recipes came from or were inspired by and I personally did not care for the font of the chapters and recipe names. The recipes were great basic Mediterranean food, nothing too outlandish or difficult.
Overall a great introduction into the Mediterranean way of eating.
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is a wonderful cookbook. The pictures are beautiful and all of the recipes look delicious.
great cooking book, found it very easy to follow my first time trying this type of food, with plenty of pictures and very nicely written so easy to follow.
my husband loved each meal i cooked him and now we have med day every week
worth buying very goid healthy food
Before I had even gotten to the recipes, I immediately fell in love with the table of contents. Not only does it list each recipe, but it lists the level of difficulty (from “super easy” through “more effort) AND the amount of time the recipe will take to prepare. This is exactly the up-front information that cooks want to know before they select what to cook on a given night.
The recipes come with beautiful color pictures and easy to follow instructions. One thing I was particularly happy to see was nutrition information, so that you immediately know the calories per serving. Recipes also come with helpful tips as well as notes at the end of the recipe that alert readers to the pressure points, if a recipe happens to have them, helping to ensure your meal comes out perfect. Some recipes even come with video tips which is one of the cooler things I've seen in a recipe book!
This is a great resource for anyone on the Mediterranean diet, anyone who wants to cook more Mediterranean dishes, or anyone who wants to eat more healthy.
Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. A good cookbook with lots of ideas to try out!
Good book for any one interested in Mediterranean cooking very informative with clear instructions and some very tasty recipes.
I received this book from Booksgosocial and Netgalley for a review.
This is such an informative and comprehensive book about Mediterranean cooking. The whole book is laid out beautifully with gorgeous pictures and tips for each recipe. The table of contents shows the difficulty level for each recipe. The first 2 recipes in the book are all time favorite for me, and I was very excited to learn them. First up: ginger infused roasted creamy carrot soup (wow that a mouthful…lol pun not intended but definitely works)! It turned out absolutely delicious.
100% a recommended cookbook
The photos almost had me drooling so I can’t begin to imagine what some of these dishes taste like. Several tasty looking fish recipes which I fully intend to try. As a family I often say we don’t eat enough fish and these recipes have certainly whetted my appetite.
Lots of variety to choose from to suit all tastes.
I love Mediterranean Cuisine, so the title of this book was an instant magnet.
The difference with this cookbook is that the recipes look and sound authentic. I've tried to make chicken souvlaki many times, and each time I have been disappointed. Bernetta Parris's detailed instructions might just do the trick this time!
There are many flavourful recipes in each section devoted to salads, pasta, fish/seafood, chicken and meat. <u>Fall In Love with Mediterranean Cuisine</u> by Bernetta Parris is a keeper: I am definitely ordering my own copy! Highly recommended!
Fall in Love with Mediterranean Cuisine: The Ultimate Mediterranean Diet Cookbook with Pictures for Beginners and Gurus by Bernetta Parris is a lovely cookbook. I enjoyed the beginning of the book where the Mediterranean diet is explained. The pictures are lovely and enticing. The nutritional information adds value to the recipes. So far, I have tried the Ginger-Infused Roasted Creamy Carrot Soup and it was delicious!
***** I received an ARC from NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for my honest review. *****
This cookbook was truly a delight to read. I was excited at the prospect of learning more about Mediterranean cuisine and the Mediterranean diet as this is a type of cuisine that I am not so familiar with. The table of contents of this cookbook immediately drew my attention, as well as the pictures accompanying the recipes in this book. I found this book easy to understand and follow, and I have already used one of the recipes featured in this book to make an absolutely delicious meal for myself and my family. I cannot wait to try out more recipes from this cookbook! Successfully making one of the meals featured in this cookbook makes me so excited to try out more of them. I think that this cookbook is perfect for beginners and for experts in cooking.
Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book!
I’m so impressed with the recipes in this Mediterranean cookbook. I love how each one states up front the difficulty level (super easy, easy, effort, tricky - really helpful information!). I also love that the instructions are clear and there are lots of pictures throughout. I love Mediterranean food and this cookbook does give me the confidence to try recipes I would not have normally tried at home.
Seriously perfect title for this book. I loved this so much I can’t wait to work my way through the whole book.
This is an excellent cookbook with tasty recipes. The Mediterranean Diet is healthy and delicious., Estelle with these recipes to help. The photos are great, and I love that the author puts the difficulty of the recipe, like easy or tricky.
Chicken with mushrooms
Crab and asparagus risotto
Leek and salmon parcels
All the soup recipes!
I recommend this book, 5 stars.
