Fascinating and evocative biography,
By A Customer
This review is from: Writing at the Kitchen Table: The Authorized Biography of Elizabeth David (Hardcover)
Rather than just tediously trawling through David's cookbooks Cooper sets this amazingly influential woman in her context of family, class ,lovers friends and time.
I found this an illuminating and very enjoyable book about a very talented but rather tragic woman . David is painted warts and all and I wholly disagree with the earlier review. Well worth buying .
