Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spiced baked carré of lamb

    • veronicafrance on April 20, 2019

      Simple and quick to do. *Do not* obey ED's instructions to bake the rack for 60-70 minutes! Mine was done (i.e. pleasantly pink in the middle) in 25, as advised by the butcher. The spicing is quite subtle, so up the spices if you'd like it a bit more present. Served with a gratin dauphinois and broad beans.

  • Chicken baked with Italian spice and olive oil

    • veronicafrance on August 30, 2012

      Not bad, and simple to do. But you won't get crispy skin with this method. I think if I did it again I'd take the foil off for the last 20 minutes.

  • Sweet-sour cabbage

    • KissTheCook on February 03, 2016

      2.01.16 - sauteed 3-4 oz chopped bacon end piece first with 3/4 head cabbage and one sliced onion. Terrific.

Publishers Text

A direct sequel to bestselling "An Omelette and a Glass of Wine", this anthology contains a selection of Elizabeth David's journalistic and occasional writing as well as material from her files, letters and notes, none of which has appeared in any of her nine previous books. This book is characterized by her famous elegance and wit, and, of course, her passion for food: its history, myriad possibilities and role in civilized society. 'The Blessed Elizabeth David holds a unique position in the recent history of British gastronomy. Her real skill is in her narrative and this compilation provides many examples of what she is best recognized for.' - Alastair Little in the "Evening Standard".
