This brings to mind images of hillsides covered with olive groves and wild poppies, the bright blue sea soaked in sunshine, and markets full of fresh produce: bright red tomatoes, black and green olives, basil, thyme and other herbs spreading their fragrance. The people of this region spend balmy evenings sipping drinks and nibbling on delicious mezze, tapas or antipasto.

The countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea have a common climate and geography, and have influenced each other over time. The cuisine of this region shares some common points: a generous use of olive oil, lots of fruits, fresh vegetables, legumes, grains and nuts; a moderate use of dairy and poultry; and very little use of red meat.

Variations in the cuisine come from the diverse ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds of the people.
