French Country Cooking
Having lived in France - studying French civilization at the Sorbonne and French home cooking at her Parisian lodgings - Elizabeth David had first-hand experience of a style of cooking and eating that was completely new to 1950s Britain. In this book she imparts much culinary wisdom as well as a collection of French regional recipes that were to inspire generations of home-grown chefs. This is a reprint of the second edition (1958).
Is There a Nutmeg in the House?
Compiled by Jill Norman, Elizabeth David's friend and literary executor, and published posthumously in 2000, this is a sequel to An Omelette and a Glass of Wine. It presents a further collection of articles, essays, reviews and recipes on topics ranging from the dream kitchen to Madeira, all imbued with David's sense of season, place and the role of food in society.
At Elizabeth David's Table
Classic Recipes and Timeless Kitchen Wisdom
With books such as French Provencal Cooking, published in 1960, Elizabeth David (1913–1992) transformed British attitudes to cooking and eating, importing Mediterranean influences, but also celebrating the best in English cuisine and particularly English baking. This beautifully presented anthology contains a selection of both quick recipes and classic dishes from David's books, some in her narrative style, some with their ingredients listed. The recipes have been photographed in muted style, and interspersed with essays and articles, including 'My Dream Kitchen'. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
