A great book by thius classic food writer
on 7 April 2012
Elizabeth David did more than most in the 40s and 50s to introduce Britain to Mediterranean food. She was also an extremely good writer as this book re-confirms. The book is pack full of excellent recipes that work. David's style is precise and not given to flowery language. As well as some excellent recipes the book packed with learned anecdotes and obscure food history and facts. A must for any cook.
