About the Author
Elizabeth David (1913-1992) travelled widely during the Second World War, throughout Europe, the Middle East and India. She returned to England in 1946 to write the classic Mediterranean Food, followed by five other books that all became bestsellers. Also a prolific journalist, she was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1982, and a CBE in 1986.

This is not a book for kids in a hurry, as you need to read it as a gastronomic autobiography first, and then go back and try the recipes.
In style it has the prose style of a "Miss Jean Brodie" with the "chuck in a bit of this and that" of Jamie Oliver! Above all she perfectly describes the robust tastes and smells of rural French cuisine.
I need the new one I'm about to order as my original one is just a pile of loose pages.

Thought this was going to be a great cookbook. You're better off looking at Rachel Khoo' s Parisian cookbook. However, don't take this review over the others, it's only my opinion.Published on 18 Feb. 2014 by The Educator
