From the cover: At Elizabeth Davids Table is the very best from the woman 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 Elizabeths first book, At Elizabeth Davids 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 are some of Elizabeths short essays from how to cook fast and fresh using store cupboard ingredients, to evocative portraits of French and Italian markets.
