Overview

Tutti a tavola All to the table with this bounty of Mediterranean recipes to try, savor, and gather around

To help his patients improve their health, Dr. Angelo Acquista began prescribing them recipes for nutritious and flavorful home-cooked meals prepared with ingredients key to the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean Family Table combines his medical experience and Sicilian roots to outline the guiding principles of the Mediterranean diet and takes it one step further with a collection of easy, wholesome, and delicious recipes the entire family will love.

From purees made with fresh vegetables that will tempt the taste buds of bambini and can serve as easy sides for the rest of the family to recipes tailored to meet the special nutritional needs of children and seniors (highlighted by icons for easy reference), this well-curated collection of recipes will allow you to:

Reinvent classic recipes by replacing mayonnaise and butter with heart-healthy olive oil in dishes like Mediterranean Potato Salad and Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes

Discover good-for-you Mediterranean greens in kid-approved recipes like Orecchiette with Bread Crumbs and Broccoli Rabe, and Swiss Chard and Cannellini Beans alla Alessandra

Create your own Sunday Supper family tradition with recipes like Quick and Easy Tomato Sauce and Mama s Meatballs with Pasta

The Mediterranean Family Table contains a wealth of helpful information, including how to make healthier eating choices; instill good habits in kids that will last a lifetime; and buy, store, and cook ingredients fundamental to the Mediterranean diet. Anecdotes from Acquista s family history are woven throughout, as well as stories of growing up near the Mediterranean Sea, and the techniques he uses to incorporate what he learned from his Sicilian upbringing into his busy, landlocked, modern family life. Buon appetito

Acquista, a Sicilian-born physician now living in the U.S., combines the culinary wisdom of his upbringing with his medical knowledge in this wholehearted collection of recipes. Health-conscious readers will find his no-nonsense approach encouraging: Your well-being, and that of your family, is fundamentally based upon ordinary things done every day. The book features in-depth nutrition information, with specific tips for all members of the family, from newborns to seniors. It also contains a revised food pyramid that spells out the fabulous 14 food items, including bullet points pertaining to lifestyle. For example, filed under S one finds stress management, sunshine, and sleep. The recipes are simple but enticing, with a focus on fresh vegetables. A mackerel and potato salad packs an Omega-3 punch while the tabbouleh salad with quinoa is a gluten-free source of protein and fiber. Minestrone Soup, Three Ways is a primer on improvisation: Our minestrone soup was always changing in Sicily... whatever vegetables were left over got thrown in the pot. Acquista embraces carbs in moderation (hes Italian, after all), and the pasta chapter includes toothsome fusilli with broccoli rabe and radicchio, and linguine with swordfish and almonds. For those interested in changing their life through diet, Acquista is an infectiously positive coach, and his recipes make a fine playbook. Agent: Laura Dail, Laura Dail Literary. (Nov.)
