Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sauce Messine

    • KissTheCook on November 19, 2012

      Did not care for raw shallots; high calorie and not so good

  • Baked middle gammon

    • Foodycat on January 06, 2018

      I didn't soak it (because hams aren't nearly as salty as they were when Mrs David was writing) and didn't do the breadcrumbs because I find that a really strange part of English cuisine, but the method of wrapping in foil and baking slowly made a beautifully flavoured and very succulent ham.

  • Polenta

      Teaching a Southerner to make yellow grits.

Reviews about this book

  • Dash and Bella

    I look at a tomato...should I slice it or cut into wedges. She probably looked at a tomato and thought, "Shall I make pumpkin chutney, moussaka, ratatouille, salsa, gazpacho, menerboise or minestra?"

Publishers Text

Compiled by Jill Norman

Like M.F.K. Fisher and Julia Child, Elizabeth David changed the way we think about and prepare food. Before her death in 1992, she wrote nine books that, with impeccable wit and considerable brilliance, helped educate the postwar generation. Insisting on authentic recipes and fresh ingredients, she showed that food need not be complicated to be good.

Many of the recipes and excerpts here were chosen by David's friends and by the chefs and writers she inspired (including Alice Waters and Barbara Kafka). This collection will enable some of us to discover and others to remember what made David one of our most influential and best-loved food writers.
