So glad you’re here! I’m Suzy, a true daughter of the Mediterranean–born and raised on the Mediterranean shores of Egypt– and author, photographer, recipe developer behind TheMediterraneanDish.com.
The Mediterranean Dish is my personal food blog and an online resource for modern Mediterranean recipes and the Mediterranean diet. Here, you will find recipes celebrating bold flavors of the Mediterranean from Europe, to North Africa, and the Middle East. You will also find many Mediterranean diet friendly recipes and other helpful resources.

Growing up on the shores of the Mediterranean, my love and knowledge of Mediterranean flavors and the Mediterranean lifestyle began at a 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. So, when you see a recipe that is not exactly what you expected, remember that I’m not after repeating traditional Mediterranean recipes, I am offering 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, 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.)
