Does justice to a great woman, 1 July 2013
Aged 18 I left Northern Rhodesia in 1959 for college in London. I purchased Mediterranean Food, and sat in my bedsit I was transported back to a land of sun, spice and bright colours. I was hooked. Her evocotive writing set a minor on a road to fulfilment, brought about by my journey into FOOD. I have all her books, from a beautifully illustrated "Italian Food" to my latest purchases.
