Biography

Elizabeth David (1913-1992) changed the way we think about, write about, prepare, and enjoy food. Her first two books, Mediterranean Food(1950) and French Country Cooking (1951), were a celebration of everything fresh, tasty, simple, and delightful, and they struck a decisive one-two punch against British postwar cooking. David's wit, her love of pleasure, her appeal to the senses and the imagination – not to mention her delicious recipes – sparked a revolution of taste in Great Britain: boiled carrots and canned ham suddenly gave way to olive oil and sea salt, sprigs of rosemary and whole basil leaves, seasonal produce and fresh pasta. Here was something new in the cold, gray world: a food writer who was stimulating, opinionated, informative, and funny, a wonderful companion in both the library and the kitchen.
