5.0 out of 5 stars Real food writing., 2 Sep 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Omelette and a Glass of Wine (Hardcover)
This book should be compulsory reading in schools, a collection of stories and recipes as previously published in magazines and newspapers by this wonderful food writer. Reading this delightfull book will jolt you back to all the things we have forgotten about simple food and it's preparation, and if nothing else the making of a lovely starter or supper dish from a tin of sardines is worth the title price, with modern TV food programmes pushing ever more expensive ingredients, how lovely it is to go back to a time when things were all together less pretentious and sensible, a truly 'must have' book for anyone who cooks.

It's an excellent book to be sure, one of my favourites, but why on earth should it be compulsory reading in schools?

Why you may ask, in order to teach young people the basics of good food preparation and the history of our best simple cookery, perhaps a way to start to break the mould of fast food rubbish, that is currently threatening to shorten the lives of several generations, only education is a true long term solution, and I would have thought any progress to this end is worthwhile, you are of course entitled to your own opinion.

My opinion is the same as yours; teaching young people the basics of food preparation is more than worthwhile. I'm just not sure that forcing them to read Elizabeth David is the way to do it.
