Paula Wolfert is the premier expert on Mediterranean cuisines. In Mediterranean Clay Pot Cooking, the self-confessed clay-pot “junkie” — having collected in her travels ceramic pots of all sorts, including cazuelas, tagines, baking dishes, bean pots, Romertopf baking dishes, French diablos, ordinary casseroles, and even Crock-Pots, which have a ceramic liner — shares recipes as vibrant as the Mediterranean itself, along with the delightful stories behind the earthy pots, irresistible dishes, and outstanding cooks she has met along the way.
Wolfert demystifies the process of clay-pot cooking, by which fresh ingredients are transformed slowly, richly, and lusciously into magnificent meals. She shares 150 recipes featuring soups, fish and shellfish, poultry, meats, pasta and grains, vegetables and beans, pies and breads, eggs and dairy, and desserts.
