Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR ELIZABETH DAVID

"If we were to bushwhack our way back to the true source of American food culture we would find that it is not Julia Child but Elizabeth David. [Her] recipes are all charm; they evoke an easy, sensual, exotic Mediterranean life."
The New Yorker

"She is, to me, probably the greatest food writer we have."
—James Beard
