At Elizabeth David's Table is the very best from the woman who who changed the face of British cooking.
Elizabeth David introduced a dreary post-war Britain to the sun-drenched culinary delights of the Mediterranean; to foods like olive oil and pasta, artichokes and fresh herbs - foods that have become the staples of our diets today.
Her recipes brought colour and life into kitchens everywhere, yet her books never contained any photographs.
Now, published for the first time, is this beautiful new collection of her most inspiring, everyday recipes with full-colour photography throughout. Published to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elizabeth's first book, At Elizabeth David's Table has twelve chapters guiding the reader from tasty soups and starters, through to meat, fish and desserts.
Sections on successful bread making, as well as more extravagant dishes, ensure that this will become the cookery bible that you will turn to, time and time again.
Interspersed throughout At Elizabeth David's Table are some of Elizabeth's short essays - from how to cook 'fast and fresh' using store cupboard ingredients, to evocative portraits of French and Italian markets. 'Not only did she transform the way we cooked but she is a delight to read' Express on Sunday 'Britain's most inspirational food writer' Independent '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 'Not only did she transform the way we cooked but she is a delight to read' Express on Sunday Elizabeth David (1913-1992) is the woman who changed the face of British cooking.
Having travelled widely during the Second World War, she introduced post-war Britain to the sun-drenched delights of the Mediterranean and her recipes brought new flavours and aromas into kitchens across Britain.
After her classic first book Mediterranean Food followed more bestsellers, including French Country Cooking, Summer Cooking, French Provincial Cooking, Italian Food, Elizabeth David's Christmas and At Elizabeth David's Table.
