Mediterranean food--:Lashaun Turner-Food-Lifestyle-Travel Writer--:

Mediterranean food encompasses a wide variety of cultures with distinct flavor profiles and cuisines.

The region is vast and encompasses over 20 countries that border the Mediterranean Sea.

The restaurant Paymons describes one such flavor profile as ranging from “bright flavors like lemon, parsley, apricot, and mint, to warm, savory flavors like garlic, cumin, and black/red pepper".
