The Mediterranean Family Table Book Review:

Tutti a tavola—All to the table with this bounty of Mediterranean recipes to try, savor, and gather around To help his patients improve their health, Dr. Angelo Acquista began “prescribing” them recipes for nutritious and flavorful home-cooked meals prepared with ingredients key to the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean Family Table combines his medical experience and Sicilian roots to outline the guiding principles of the Mediterranean diet and takes it one step further with a collection of easy, wholesome, and delicious recipes the entire family will love. From purees made with fresh vegetables that will tempt the taste buds of bambini—and can serve as easy sides for the rest of the family—to recipes tailored to meet the special nutritional needs of children and seniors (highlighted by icons for easy reference), this well-curated collection of recipes will allow you to: • Reinvent classic recipes by replacing mayonnaise and butter with heart-healthy olive oil in dishes like Mediterranean Potato Salad and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes • Discover good-for-you Mediterranean greens in kid-approved recipes like Orecchiette with Bread Crumbs and Broccoli Rabe, and Swiss Chard and Cannellini Beans alla Alessandra • Create your own “Sunday Supper” family tradition with recipes like Quick and Easy Tomato Sauce and Mama’s Meatballs with Pasta The Mediterranean Family Table contains a wealth of helpful information, including how to make healthier eating choices; instill good habits in kids that will last a lifetime; and buy, store, and cook ingredients fundamental to the Mediterranean diet. Anecdotes from Acquista’s family history are woven throughout, as well as stories of growing up near the Mediterranean Sea, and the techniques he uses to incorporate what he learned from his Sicilian upbringing into his busy, landlocked, modern family life. Buon appetito!

Stella s Sephardic Table Book Review:

To be seated at a Sephardic table is to bare witness to centuries of a mesmerizingly rich cultural heritage overflowing with traditions and festivities, symbols and superstitions, stories and insights, fragrances, tastes and culinary secrets - all handed down from generation to generation around the ever-present Sephardic feast. Following the expulsion of the Jews in 1492 by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, Sephardic Jewish communities spread to new shores bringing with them their rich gastronomic heritage from Moorish Spain which naturally evolved into a wonderfully complex fusion of flavours incorporating Ottoman Turkish, Greek, Hispanic, African and other influences. Deeply inspired by her roots and constantly immersed in its traditions, author, artist and Sephardic cuisine expert Stella Cohen has set out to record the legacy of this vibrant, fascinating yet vanishing world for posterity and tell the story of her own family’s cultural journey from Rodos (where her great-grandfather Haham Yaacov Capouya, was the esteemed sage and Rabbi of Rhodes) to Rhodesia (today known as Zimbabwe) where she has raised her family to continue the traditions as passed on to her. In 1986, "Sephardic Cuisine” by Stella Cohen, a humble spiral bound cookbook, was independently published under the auspices of the Sephardic community of Zimbabwe and quickly became an international success, being reprinted many times over. For more than ten years, Stella has worked at revising and extending the original to include a more thorough exploration of the age-old subject and the techniques and traditions around it. Stella’s Sephardic Table is a treasure trove of inspiration for the soul, filled with over 250 sumptuous easy-to-follow recipes, all lavishly illustrated and garnished with anecdotes, Ladino sayings, essays and rare insights into family-cherished tips and tricks traditionally passed from mother to daughter.

It was only when she returned to her traditional Greek diet that she found herself easily—and healthily—realizing her natural weight and regaining the stamina she had as a teenager. In It's All Greek to Me: Transform Your Health the Mediterranean Way with My Family's Century-Old Recipes, Debbie shares 120 of her family's traditional Greek recipes and adds her own touch to make them even healthier and easier to prepare.

With a foreword by Dr. Michael Ozner, one of the nation’s leading cardiologists, the recipes in It’s All Greek to Me adhere to the healthiest diet on the planet: the traditional Mediterranean Diet. Modern science is catching up to what Greeks have known for millennia: health comes from eating natural, whole-food ingredients that haven’t been processed or pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, or preservatives. Let It’s All Greek to Me bring your friends and family together to share in the experience of a Greek meal and way of life. Opa! A portion of all proceeds will benefit the ALS Association.

Mediterranean Meals Book Review:

Cooking Mediterranean recipes isn't as hard as you think! Now, Dr. Angelo Acquista, author of the #1 bestselling Mediterranean diet book, brings you 25 easy Mediterranean recipes based on the 7 Sicilian Superfoods that promote weight loss and good health for life. Even if you've tried a Mediterranean diet cookbook before, these new recipes will spice up your life (and your health).What is the Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan?The Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan is a meal plan based on 7 Sicilian “superfoods” that Dr. Angelo Acquista (author and native of Sicily) has identified as foods that can improve your health and your life. For years Dr. Acquista has counseled his patients about weight loss and now he shares that knowledge so that everyone can learn to live and eat in “abbondanza,” the Sicilian way. A Mediterranean diet plan is an excellent way to eat better, lose weight, and keep that weight off. It's easy to start, easy to maintain, and the foods you will use can be found at any local grocery. Food preparation is as simple as grilling, broiling, boiling, and baking – all of which make for some delicious dishes.What is the Mediterranean Diet Food Pyramid?Created by Oldways (a non-profit organization that promotes healthy eating), the Harvard School of Public Health, and the European Office of the World Health Organization, the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid is a visual representation of the classic Mediterranean Diet, which promotes lifelong good health. At the base is a physically active lifestyle in which meals are shared with others and there is an appreciation for eating healthy, delicious foods. The second largest portion of the pyramid is formed by the traditional staples of Mediterranean cuisine including fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and olive oil, as well as healthful herbs and spices. Seafood is next, with poultry, dairy, meats, and sweets making up the smallest portion of the pyramid. All of these foods create a healthy and delicious meal palette and endless recipe opportunities. Take your own shot at eating within the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid by using this new recipe book from Dr. Angelo Acquista, “Mediterranean Meals.” It's a compilation of appetizing, easy to prepare recipes in the Sicilian tradition using all of the delicious foods recommended by the Mediterranean food pyramid. There are over 100 recipes in his first book, “The Mediterranean Prescription,” as well.How can you set up a Mediterranean diet plan menu?Many people feel more confident with a new diet plan when they have a weekly or monthly menu to choose from. It helps you stay on track, be prepared for quick meals, and find the right snacks. If you've been following “The Mediterranean Prescription” by Dr. Angelo Acquista, you may already be familiar with the two-week weight-loss stage that includes delicious recipes that are easy to prepare and help you lose up to 10 pounds right away. So how can you extend that meal plan beyond the first two weeks if you'd like a little more guidance every day? First, as recommended in this new e-book “Mediterranean Meals,” stock up on the 7 Sicilian superfoods – olive oil, cruciferous vegetables, berries, nuts, fish, legumes, and tomatoes. Those ingredients will provide a delicious, healthy foundation to any dish. “Mediterranean Meals” will give you 25 new dishes as well, then you can mix and match from there. Switch out one cruciferous vegetable (e.g., broccoli in place of escarole, kale instead of collards) for another, and wind up with a completely new tasting recipe. Or try adding flaked canned tuna to a salad recipe to make it a meal. When you have the right foundation with a Mediterranean style meal plan, the possibilities are endless.So, here it is: From Angelo Acquista, M.D., author of the #1 bestselling Mediterranean diet book, this brand new e-book of 25 delicious new recipes based on the 7 Sicilian Superfoods that promote weight loss and good health for life.

The rise of the Mediterranean as the cradle of the Western Civilization leads to a discourse on the status of human interaction with the sea. Accelerating global climate change, water warming, ocean acidification and sea level rise, and analyses of their effects on key organisms, entire ecosystems and human socioeconomics are given. Forecasting and predictions are presented taking into account different future scenarios from the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change). The volume is richly illustrated in color, with an extensive bibliography. A valuable addition to the limited literature in the field, offering up-to-date broad coverage merging science and humanities.​

The Ralph Nader and Family Cookbook Book Review:

Ralph Nader and his family share recipes inspired by his parents' commitment to the healthy diet of their homeland of Lebanon. "Growing up in Winsted, Conn., Ralph Nader would often help his mother cook--kneading the bread dough, chopping fragrant spices to prepare dishes for the family table from his parents' native Lebanon." --NPR, Weekend Edition Sunday "More than just a collection of recipes, though, this is a window on a culture and a family. Nader's description of his mother convincing 8-year-old Ralph to eat radishes speaks volumes about this persuasive matriarch and the tireless activist she raised." --Washington Post Book Club "The book is both a compilation of Lebanese dishes Nader grew up eating and an homage to his mother Rose, who never let her children eat anything processed or prepackaged, and always cooked from scratch." --The Hartford Courant "Nader's cookbook is many things: it is an homage to his mother and her love of simple cooking that her family enjoyed around the kitchen table; a delightful and colorful examination (filled with recipes) of the Lebanese culinary tradition that immigrants to the United States carried with them to a new land; and an endorsement of good eating, cooking with simple, fresh ingredients that Nader hopes will continue to open many individuals' minds about obesity and the role processed foods play in this national, indeed, global health crises." --Litchfield County Times "One cannot put down this beautifully illustrated book, with a stunning full-page colored photo opposite each recipe. Large print makes it easy to read while you work, and the engaging introduction by Nader relates life as a young boy in Winsted." --The Republican-American Ralph Nader is best-known for his social critiques and his efforts to increase government and corporate accountability, but what some might not know about him is his lifelong commitment to healthy eating. Born in Connecticut to Lebanese parents, Nader's appreciation of food began at an early age, when his parents, Rose and Nathra, owned an eatery, bakery, and delicatessen called the Highland Arms Restaurant. The family eschewed processed foods and ate only a moderate amount of lean red meat. Nowadays, the Mediterranean diet is considered one of the healthiest on the planet, but in the 1930s and '40s of Nader's youth it was considered by many Americans as simply strange. Luckily for Nader and his siblings, this didn't prevent their mother, Rose, from serving the family homemade, healthy meals--dishes from her homeland of Lebanon. Rose didn't simply encourage her children to eat well, she took time to discuss and explain her approach to food; she used the family meals to connect all of her children to the traditions of their ancestors. The Ralph Nader and Family Cookbook shares the cuisine of Nader's upbringing, presenting Lebanese dishes inspired by Rose's recipes that will be both known to many, including hummus and baba ghanoush, as well as others that may be lesser known, such as kibbe, the extremely versatile national dish of Lebanon, and sheikh al-mahshi--"the 'king' of stuffed foods." The cookbook includes an introduction by Nader and anecdotes throughout. The Ralph Nader and Family Cookbook will entice one's taste buds, while sharing a side of Ralph Nader that may not be commonly known, though will not surprise anyone familiar with his decades of activism and involvement in consumer protection advocacy.
