My Mediterranean Cooking Journey
Mediterranean cooking has been a big part of my life since childhood. My introduction to Mediterranean cuisine came from my grandparents, Lois and Clarence Avey, who spent the 1970’s traveling Europe in a VW bus with a kerosene-fueled kitchenette. They sparked my interest in global travel and history. They also introduced me to the incredible flavors from this part of the world, by recreating the dishes they had tasted on their travels.
In recent years, I’ve had the pleasure to cook with families from a number of Mediterranean countries, including France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, and more. I treasure these global friendships, which have allowed me to expand this collection of Mediterranean recipes on my site.
The Mediterranean way of eating is so healthy and nourishing. It also happens to be incredibly delicious! On my site you’ll see mostly Mediterranean, pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan recipes. You will also find many recipes here that were developed in my home kitchen, channeling what I have learned about Mediterranean cooking into exciting new flavor combinations.
I have worked hard to categorize my Mediterranean recipes into specific collections, to make the site as helpful as possible. You’ll also notice a number of Jewish recipes on the site. Many of those dishes were collected in Israel, where my husband was born on the Middle Eastern shores of the Mediterranean.
