Changes in Mediterranean Cuisines

Have you since writing Mediterranean Cooking, observed shifts in the cuisine you described in 1976? Does regional cooking have an inertia that renders it relatively immune to what may be current (or fashionable) in the rest of the world?

For example about taste changes: just today I received an email from a friend in southeastern Turkey telling me about the rage for baking fish on tiles. A dish that never existed before in this landlocked town. By the time I get back to visit..who knows? I will be seeing it everywhere.
