Mediterranean food is immensely popular all over the world. The wonderful aromas and flavours of the varied cuisines of this region tend to leave a lasting impression on all those who appreciate good food.  Two adjectives – robust and intense – beautifully describe the range of dishes from coastal Spain through France, Italy, Greece, Turkey and along North Africa.
These countries have influenced each other’s food habits over the years and their cooking has evolved into sharing common principles. There is a great regional diversity between the countries around the Mediterranean Sea and yet there are so many similarities. The hall mark of Mediterranean cuisine is its flexibility, the vast range of ingredients and its numerous variations.
