Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cucumber yogurt dip (Tzatziki)

    • julesamomof2 on July 15, 2017

      There are a zillion recipes for Tzatziki out there, but I was drawn to this one with its use of garlic confit and it did not disappoint. I'm not a fan of raw garlic as it can be overpowering. Keeper!

  • Garlic confit

    • julesamomof2 on August 15, 2017

      A must, especially for those that dislike raw garlic. I make it all the time and use if anywhere one would use raw garlic.

  • Ladolemono

    • MollyB on May 08, 2018

      Great recipe that is very handy to have in the fridge for use as a dressing, marinade, or sauce. I frequently make a batch and keep it in the fridge in a squeeze bottle to have on hand.

  • Grilled spicy chicken kebabs with wilted spinach

    • MollyB on May 08, 2018

      Love this recipe, but be aware that the spicy red rub is, well, very spicy. When I made it, I cooked some of the chicken plain, with just the marinade, to feed to my 6 yr old. I recommend at least doubling the amount of spinach - we wanted more - and definitely serving with the optional tzatziki sauce to temper the heat.

  • Roasted salmon with Brussels sprout and fennel salad

    • MollyB on April 27, 2017

      This is my new favorite way to eat Brussels sprouts. I'll definitely be making the salad again. The salmon was good but the salad is fabulous. It's a pain to take the separate the leaves of the sprouts, but it's worth it.

Publishers Text

The acclaimed chef and author of How to Roast a Lamb offers a simple strategy for healthy cooking, highlighting the ease, deliciousness, and proven benefits of the Mediterranean diet.

Doctors have extolled the virtues of the Mediterranean diet for decades, but no chef has given home cooks the recipes they'll want to make again and again--until now. In Live to Eat, Michael Psilakis modernizes the food of his heritage to prove that clean, healthy meals can also be comforting and easy to prepare.

Cooking the Mediterranean way means deliciousness, not deprivation: a nearly endless array of satisfying weeknight meals for your family can start with just seven easy-to-find staples, from Greek yogurt to simple tomato sauce.
