Publishers Text

Elisabeth Luard's regular column in "The Field" is one of the magazine's most popular features. Now, for the first time, the acclaimed author of "European Peasant Cookery: The Rich Tradition" has gathered together a selection of those pieces, illustrated with her own exquisite line drawings, to present an eclectic and quite individual blend of food, history and travel writing. In recipes ranging from Moroccan salted lemons and pickled peaches to sauté of partridges with watercress sauce and an unforgettable ecumenical Simnel cake, Elisabeth Luard brings alive her intimate knowledge of the European culinary heritage. "The Princess and the Pheasant" is a wholly delightful celebration of the very best of food and wine writing destined to take its place alongside such classics of the genre as Elizabeth David's "An Omelette and a Glass of Wine". A lifelong student of the history of cooking, Elisabeth Luard has lived abroad for long periods, notably in France, Spain and Italy. She is married to the writer Nicholas Luard and has four grown-up children.
