Making a meal of the Mediterranean
From Spanish tapas to Italian antipasti and Greek salads, the countries that share a coastline with the sparkling Mediterranean serve up some seriously delicious – and incredibly simple – dishes. With a few pots of olives, capers, anchovies, sun-dried tomatoes and grilled artichokes in your store-cupboard, you already have many of the important elements of a sun-kissed spread.
Learn to make your own pasta and start growing that kitchen, balcony or backyard herb garden – rosemary, mint and parsley add a fragrant twist to dishes from this region.
