5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth David Always Best.
This is a wonderful book in every way. Favourite recipes - they are still excellent and still work - with good photographs and some enchanting quotations from David herself. This is for cooking, reading and pleasurable browsing. Would make a lovely present for newly weds or for those who remember the originals with affection - and for those whose copies have like mine...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cooking history
Even though I always wanted a book by Elizabeth David it surprised me that this particular book is so basic. Nicely presented and a lovely read but most of the recipes are well known already and the basis of much modern day cookery which is obviously where a lot of modern cookery come . Will check out her other books to see if they appeal to me more

5.0 out of 5 stars Does justice to a great woman, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Elizabeth David's Table: Her Very Best Everyday Recipes (Hardcover)
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. Jill Norman has climbed a mountain and put Elizabeth David back on top.

Lovely book, recipes beautifully presented (in fact it makes you realise how primitive recipe book production was in the 50s and 60s when she was writing). It also seems to have some recipes that are not in any of her books, that were given in newspaper and magazine articles, etc. A must have for David fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Elizabeth David's Table: Her Very Best Everyday Recipes (Hardcover)
Lovely colour photographs but recipes far too complicated requiring a lot of time and work. Many of them or the ingredientsw not to my liking so I will give the book to a charity shop. You win some and you lose some.

I am a keen good cook and knowledgeable but found the above book disappointing.
