Legendary cook and writer Elizabeth David changed the way Britain ate, introducing a postwar nation to the sun-drenched delights of the Mediterranean, and bringing new flavours and aromas such as garlic, wine and olive oil into its kitchens. This mouthwatering selection of her writings and recipes embraces the richness of French and Italian cuisine, from earthy cassoulets to the simplest spaghetti, as well as evoking the smell of buttered toast, the colours of foreign markets and the pleasures of picnics. Rich with anecdote, David's writing is defined by a passion for good, authentic, well-balanced food that still inspires chefs today.

About the Author:

Elizabeth David (1913-1992) was a legendary writer and cook. In 1950, she published Mediterranean Food and along with subsequent books, including Italian Food and French Provincial Cooking, changed the face of cookery in Britain for ever. In her later works she explored the traditions of English cooking and is widely considered Britain's greatest twentieth-century cookery writer. Her books continue to inspire many today, who find her philosophy of simplicity, authenticity, knowledge and care to their liking. She received a CBE in 1986.

Review:

When I go back and read her books now, I feel I plagiarized them. All of it seeped in so much, it's embarrassing to read them now -- Alice Waters, Chez Panisse Above all, Elizabeth David's books make you want to cook -- Terence Conran
