What People are Saying About This

Judy Rodgers

“Her writing is as timeless as the cuisines she describes. Re-reading her recipes, I am struck again, and again, that each is a seductive little invitation to cook. And if you love to cook, discovering her work is surely one of the greatest pleasures of all.”

Ruth Reichl

“[Elizabeth David] was James Beard, Julia Child, and MFK Fisher rolled into one… She has so much more to tell us than merely how to cook... reading between the lines you come to understand that what Elizabeth David is really saying is to savor every minute of your life.”

Sam Sifton

“The food rendered in blooming center-focus color, the images as soft at the edges as a dream… This title serves as a good introduction, to be followed by trips to the used-book store for the originals, best consumed with an omelet and a glass of wine.”

Alice Waters

“I am still surprised every time I read Elizabeth David; she defines what it is to be a true food writer, and her words are timeless. This beautiful illustrated anthology reveals her bright spirit... She defends the authentic and the seasonal, and champions simplicity and beauty in the kitchen. ”
