Welcome to your source for the authentic and traditional foods of Italy and the Mediterranean in their cultural and historical context illustrated with hundreds of heirloom and innovative Italian and Mediterranean recipes fully-tested in the kitchen of James Beard award winning cookbook author Clifford A. Wright.

This is the site for people for whom food is glorious and not fearsome, for people who watch their happiness before they watch their weight, for people who believe that behind every swallow is an insight into who they are. Here is your entry into the world of the most popular cuisines in the world, the world of all the culinary regions of Italy and the Mediterranean. You will find the culinary cultures of Italy and all the countries of the Mediterranean offered with the same depth and balance of recipes and their histories as you would in a flavorful bouillabaisse.

Cuisine does not spring from nowhere and it does not spring from restaurants. Cuisine is a cultural phenomenon that evolves from real people in kitchens cooking to provide food for their families guided by culture, history, agricultural, and need and wants. Here you will find REAL food. I hope you enjoy the recipes and culinary history posted here.

Clifford Wright has done it again! Not only does Little Foods of the Mediterranean provide hundreds of mouth-watering recipes, it also offers a lively history of their origins. Wright shares with us the centuries-old philosophy of eating that underlies these marvelous little foods, seasoning his text with spicy etymologies along with copious doses of Aleppo pepper and harisa.
