Melia Marden

MODERN MEDITERRANEAN: Easy, Colorful, Full-Flavored Home Cooking (2013) 

First cookbook by the Executive Chef of Manhattan restaurant The Smile and The Smile To Go, with 120 recipes for Mediterranean home cooking, with a sense of relaxed bohemian glamour.

Praise for Modern Mediterranean:

“Modern Mediterranean is a stylish, no-nonsense guide to creating some rather choice staples. . . . The Smile regulars will find a few familiar meals amid the pages, as well as memories of Marden’s fond experiences with certain dishes, how she amended them and made them her signature, and old photographs of her families sprinkled among the recipes.”   —Interview

“This book, by Melia Marden—the executive chef of the trendy Bond Street restaurant the Smile, and daughter of the artists Brice and Helen—is a new favorite of mine. Modern Mediterranean is one of those cookbooks that makes you lust after everything within it.” —The New Yorker 

“An intimate, easy-to-follow guide.” —W.com

“It’s a culinary scrapbook of Marden’s favorite recipes.”—Nowness.com

“When Modern Mediterranean landed on our desk, we were just as enamored by the bright, happy colors and gorgeous photographs of chef Melia Marden’s stylish recipes and eclectic home as we were by her fairy-tale backstory.”—Metro
