This review is from: Elizabeth David's Christmas (Hardcover)
This book is a celebration of Christmas and a celebration in writing about food. It was an inspiration on the part of the publishers to gather together Elizabeth David's recipes and various articles directly or indirectly relating to Christmas and put them in one Christmas book. It's beautifully written and has David's chatty tone throughout the text which leads the reader on from one idea to another in happy anticipation . I cooked from a number of recipes for our family Christmas last year and I had a contented time in the kitchen and smiles all round at the dining table. Since then I dip into it just to read and relax and plan a few more tasty meals . Her books open up the world of food and eating and living like none other. If you are feeling a bit bored with food, low on inspiration or appetite for life, treat yourself to this nicely produced book. And enjoy !
