Review

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)
