"'A remarkable book.... food is treated with reverence, with understanding and, above all, with care' - Sunday Times"
From the Back Cover
'Her books are stunningly well written ... full of history and anecdote' Observer
French Country Cooking - first published in 1951 - is filled with authentic and splendid recipes drawn from across the regions of France. Showing how each area has a particular and unique flavour for its foods, derived as they are from local ingredients, Elizabeth David explores the astonishing diversity of French cuisine.
Her recipes range from the primitive pheasant soup of the Basque country to the refined Burgundian dish of hare with cream sauce and chestnut puree. This rich and enticing book will delight and inspire cooks everywhere.
'You can smell and taste the food David wrote about' Daily Telegraph

Elizabeth David is the woman who changed the face of British cooking. She introduced post-war Britain to the sun-drenched delights of the Mediterranean and her recipes brought new flavours and aromas into kitchens across Britain.

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.
