When her children flew the nest, Elisabeth Luard decided it was time to discover new worlds, beyond the family. As a prize-winning food writer, she chose to explore through her cookery. Guided by a trail of enticing aromas and flavours, Luard travels from kitchen to field to restaurant, taking us on a journey that criss-crosses the globe, from the gastronomic delights of the Bosphorus to life in the Arctic circle and the glitzy cuisine of Hollywood.

Full of the sparkling anecdotes of the people she meets, and scattered with exotic recipes picked up along the way, Elisabeth Luard provides a window into fragile, often vanishing, ways of life as she explores new countries through the kitchens, market places and traditions of the locals. Funny, uplifting and insightful, Still Life offers a fresh look at the world outside the family.

Review:

Birth, death, life, nourishment, mystery, company: once again, it's all here -- Libby Purves * The Times * She is blessed, not only with good humour and perseverance, but a painter's eye for detail, and the cook's true under-standing of the place of food in a nation's culture and history * Frances Bissell * Luard writes like a greedy angel * Guardian * Elisabeth Luard is one of the greatest food writers of recent times -- Antony Worrall Thompson * Daily Express * Elisabeth Luard has inspired many great chefs -- Tom Parker Bowles * Daily Mail *
