Mediterranean Clay Pot Cooking
Mediterranean Clay Pot Cooking: Traditional and Modern Recipes to Savor and Share By Paula Wolfert, Wiley, 2009. Hardcover. $35; 334 pages
Paula Wolfert, one of the goddesses of Mediterranean cooking, began collecting clay cooking utensils at the age of 19 but didn’t realize their potential to turn out flavorful, unique dishes until much later. In this book, she shares recipes collected from professional and home cooks throughout the region. Her knowledge of clay cookery is extensive: She understands the advantage of size, shape, and type of clay the pot is made from and includes recipes suited to each.
