difference b/w Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine

Learning2cook | Feb 6, 2008 08:05 PM

Sorry to sound naïve, but I am learning about cooking through cookbooks, looking at restaurant menus online, and both Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine are melding in my mind. I keep reading about foods like bugler, lentils, hummus, olive oil, etc. associated with both these cultures/regions. What is the difference? Is Greece and France considered Med.? Once again, I apologize for my ignorance (keep in mind I am a newbie and trying to learn!)

Thanks!
