Format: Paperback
This is an extraordinary book, chiefly because it has the worst opening chapter of almost any I have read - and after than it becomes excellent. Elizabeth Luard is a cookery writer, and a large part of the book concerns her travels researching European Peasant Cookery. Much of this is in Eastern Europe before the fall of the Berlin Wall, and is shocking, funny and enlightening. She is great on the indigenous flavours of different parts of the world, makes friends in markets by using her sketchbook, and even receives hospitality from a cricket-loving monk. Recipes are interspersed in the text, and look simple and delicious. But oh, beware that first chapter - a self indulgent, slightly foolish musing on how women cope with turning 50. It must be something she needed to write out. As a woman in her mid 50s, I find it impossible to empathise. Skip that chapter, and enjoy the rest.

I bought this as I love Elizabeth Luard's books. However I discovered that this was the same book I had bought years ago. It was called 'Still Life' then. Marketed now with a different cover and the words 'Klipfisk, cloudberries and life after kids' added. I thought it was a different book. I hope no other people fall for this dubious morality marketing.

This second hand book was recveived in good condition. I can see why it is out of print for, although it is elegantly written and is often amusing, it feels rather a self indulgent travelogue and poorly edited. However it was a pleasant light read
