5.0 out of 5 stars A new Elizabeth DAVID's fan!!!, 27 Feb. 2002
This review is from: Is There a Nutmeg in the House? (Penguin Cookery Library) (Paperback)
I was just browsing in my local bookshop under the "Cooking-category". I came across Elizabeth DAVID's 'IS THERE A NUTMEG IN THE HOUSE" by accident. I bought the book straight away, and I can't put down the book.
I had tried Pastenak (pasnips) and cress cream soup. Spicy lentils soup is just delicious! And, the spiced prunes!!! hmmm.....
One of new year's resolution is to eat healthily, more vegetables and fruits!! I know I can do it this time. :) Whats so AWESOME is the introduction of new ways of cooking veg (eg parsnips - which I normally roasted them) and simple and clear instructions.
Funny and witty delivery! Thoroughly enjoyed the book.
I have also bought "French Provincial Book", and "Italian cooking". I cant wait to read them.
If you like Elizabeth DAVID, you will also like Jane GRIGSON. Similar style.
After discovering Elizabeth David's and Jane Grigson's works, I really think going to basic, simple, uncomplicated... is the WAY TO GO. I prefer this GENERATION of chefs.
