Excerpted from the back cover:
Through her family, education, and travels, Esther B. Cory is uniquely qualified to write a cookbook about the Mediterranean region. Mrs. Cory's mother, university-trained, was a superb cook, and carefully instructed her daughter in the art of cooking. Among Mrs. Cory's earliest recollections of their household in London was the use her mother made of olive oil for her personal care and in the kitchen. The ruling principle was that to produce a good dish you must use the ingredients of quality and particularly a very good olive oil.
Mediterranean Specialties for the Modern Cook will now make available to you the unusual taste experiences previously confined to the informed gourmets in one of the most exciting areas of the world.
