Taste & Flavors - - READ ABOUT IT -

Coast­line ex­plores the legacy of the an­cient Greeks, Ro­mans, Arabs and Vik­ings, who left the gift of a cui­sine of the sun, fla­vored with gen­eros­ity and con­vivi­al­ity. Mediter­ranean recipes in­clude sal­ads, pasta sauces, pizza and pies, soups and stews, fam­ily feasts and desserts from the fish­ing vil­lages, farms and cob­bled squares around the golden cres­cent. Learn to cook up: vi­brant fresh pesto; shrimp in al­mond bat­ter; fried ravi­oli with Swiss chard and pump­kin fill­ings; Socca or Far­i­nata (crisp chick­pea pan­cakes); the de­fin­i­tive bouil­l­abaisse; hearty lentil and chorizo stew; and crisp Xur­ros (chur­ros) with cho­co­late.
