So glad you’re here! I’m Suzy, a true daughter of the Mediterranean–born and raised by the Mediterranean shores of Egypt, just a boat ride away from places like Italy, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, and Israel. I first learned to cook as a child in my mother’s Mediterranean kitchen, and I have lived and cooked the Mediterranean way ever since!
The Mediterranean Dish is my personal food blog for modern Mediterranean recipes and the Mediterranean diet (lifestyle). Here, you will find recipes celebrating bold flavors of the Mediterranean from Europe, to North Africa, and the Middle East. You will also find hundreds of Mediterranean diet recipes and other helpful resources on eating and living the Mediterranean way.

Growing up blocks away from the Mediterranean shores, my love and knowledge of Mediterranean flavors and the Mediterranean lifestyle began at a very young age. My recipes are big on Mediterranean flavors, and I share them with a personal modern twist–simple, every-day recipes.
3 Mediterranean Values I Follow
These three simple Mediterranean values have guided my cooking and lifestyle for years: Eat with the seasons; use mostly whole foods; and above all, share!
What kind of Mediterranean Recipes to Expect Here?
All recipes on The Mediterranean Dish have been developed in my humble kitchen, and with my own personal twist. I offer my own modern take that has worked for me, a busy mom, and the people I feed. And yes, I personally take all the photos, unless otherwise stated.
And, while the majority of the recipes here are Mediterranean diet-friendly recipes, some may not meet your very particular needs. If you have particular health needs that require a strict regimen, please select what works for you with the help of a health care professional. (See Nutrition Information Disclosure.)
