Under the Mediterranean Sun

Nadia Zerouali, Merijn Tol


Authors Nadia and Merijn have always travelled extensively to research their beautiful cookbooks. This is no exception. Since publishing Arabia in 2011, they have continued to push the culinary envelope and source the most authentic, simple and delectable recipes. In journeys throughout southern Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa, this dynamic duo document the food, people and stories encountered along the way. For Nadia and Merijn, the Arab world has no strict geography – as certain dishes in Spain and southern Italy are as influenced by the “Arab world” as those in Morocco, Tunisia and the Middle East.

Under the Mediterranean Sun is a personal food odyssey to find the people, places and dishes that unite the Mediterranean and the Arabic world. This book’s 125 recipes are separated by region: Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Israel, Turkey, Sicily, Andalusia, Sardinia and Catalonia. What unites each of these distinct regions is the incomparable colours, textures and sun-dappled spirit of the Mediterranean.
