The Mediterranean: A Geographic Region, a Climate, and a Cuisine

Unlike many other ethnic cuisines, Mediterranean cuisine is not the product of a specific ethnic group or culture.  Rather, it is a label referring to the culinary trends shared by a diverse array of peoples that live in the region around the Mediterranean Sea.   While Mediterranean cuisine is understood to be a unified culinary tradition in this country, in reality, there is a vast amount of cultural variance in the cooking found in this geographic region.

 

Why are Mediterranean diets so healthy?

The temperate isles of the Mediterranean are home to sun, sea and delicious dishes thought to hold the key to good health. But what is it that makes a Mediterranean diet quite so good for us? The British Heart Foundation, give their view on the healthy benefits of the sunshine cuisine…

There has been a lot of talk recently about whether fat or sugar is the worst offender when it comes to our diets. But by focusing on individual dietary components it’s easy to miss the bigger picture. While it’s important to understand how different foods and nutrients affect our health, a whole diet approach offers a more helpful way of looking at our eating habits and choices.

What is a Mediterranean diet?

A typical Mediterranean diet includes lots of vegetables, fruits, beans, cereals and cereal products, for example wholegrain bread, pasta and brown rice. It also contains moderate amounts of fish, white meat and some dairy produce.

It’s the combination of all these elements that seems to bring health benefits, but one of the key aspects is the inclusion of healthy fats. Olive oil, which is a monounsaturated fat, is most commonly associated with the Mediterranean diet but polyunsaturated fats are also present in nuts, seeds and oily fish.

 

Common Elements in Mediterranean Cuisine

The overarching characteristics of Mediterranean cuisine are largely shaped by the climate and geography of the region.  The sunny, mild Mediterranean climate yields an agricultural bounty that heavily influences the vegetable-dominant cuisines of the region.

Mediterranean Cuisine: A Shared History of Interaction

Although Mediterranean cuisine isn’t governed by a single culture, it is very much the product of cultural influence and exchange.  The world’s earliest civilizations bordered the Mediterranean Sea, their development bolstered by the rich soil and temperate climate that made agricultural production thrive.  As the point of intersection between Asia, Europe, and Africa, with major civilizations located in each area, the Mediterranean was geographically destined to become a major trading hub.  Traders exchanged cultural commodities like spices and other food goods, resulting in the wide dissemination of certain ingredients throughout the cuisines of these disparate peoples.  It was through this form of cultural interaction that certain fundamental elements of Mediterranean cuisine became popular throughout the region.
