Product Description

Review

'A complete newcomer to the kitchen could produce something delicious by following one of her recipes to the letter.' Paul Bailey, The Daily Telegraph 'For Elizabeth David, summer cooking implies a sense of immediacy, the ability to capture the essence of a fleeting moment, and her dishes bring the savour of garden, field and sea into the dining room.' Taste 'When you read Elizabeth David, you get perfect pitch. There is an understanding and evocation of flavours, colours, scents and places that lights up the page.' --Guardian Weekend

Gorgeous, simple, timeless recipes. --Irish Examiner

'every budding cook should have a copy of David's book on their kitchen shelves' --Raquel Fraccari, I (Independent mini version)

Gorgeous, simple, timeless recipes. --The Irish Examiner

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 Commander of the British Empire in 1986.

Format: Paperback
..'Roasted Cheese' & 'Baked Cheese Sandwiches' are my favourites at any time!

From the back cover:

'First published in 1955 Summer Cooking is a selection of dishes for table, buffet and picnic that are light, easy to prepare and based on seasonal ingredients.
Elizabeth David shows how an imaginative use of herbs can enhance even the simplest meals, whether egg, fish or meat, while her recipes range from a simple salade Niçoise to strawberry soufflé......'

And from the lady herself:
"By Summer Cooking, I do not necessarily mean cold food; although cold dishes are always agreeable in summer, at most meals, however hot the weather, one hot dish is welcome, but it should be a light one, such as a very simply cooked sole, an omelette, a soup of the young vegetable which is in season - something fresh which provides at the same time a change, a new outlook......."

The book opens with a useful guide to keeping and using fresh herbs.
Then follow the simply titled chapters:

* Hord d'oeuvre & Salads
* Soups
* Eggs
* Fish
* Meat
* Poultry & Game
* Vegetables
* Sauces
* Sweets
* Jams, Jellies and Other Preserves
* Buffet Food
* Improvised Cooking for Holidays & Weekends
* Picnics

along with 'Conversion Tables', and a full index.

Overall, 234 pages full of information and recipes, broken up with just the chapter opening black and white illustration.
Recipes are often more than one to a page and carry over on to a second.

Though not considered one of her classics, this book has great recipes, especially for vegetables, and, inspite of its title, is invaluable all year round.
