Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet ... (Simon Schama)
Claudia Roden's writing has the fascination of her conversation. Her books are treasure-houses of information and mines of literary pleasures (Observer)
Roden's great gift is to conjure up not just a cuisine but the culture from which it springs (Nigella Lawson)
Beyond the evocative stories and buoyant style ... there is always information ... meticulously collected, compellingly assembled, lovingly told ... informative, delectable and incredibly useful (Yotam Ottolenghi)

There are lots of meat and fish recipes too. A fabulous cook book. One of the best, that has stood the test of time.
