External Reviews

'Britain's most inspirational food writer' - Independent.

'When you read Elizabeth David, you get perfect pitch. There is an understanding and evocation of flavours, colours, scents and places that lights up the page' - Guardian.

'Not only did she transform the way we cooked but she is a delight to read' - Express on Sunday.

'If you haven't read David, you must. She's probably more familiar in England than here (although that may have changed). Her style is anecdotal, but exacting - full of details that may seem picky, but that prove their worth when you use them. Honestly, I think Nigella Lawson wishes she was Elizabeth David - not to criticize Lawson, but David is obviously the template for much of what she does. What a wonderful read and a great book for building technique and ideas.' - Goodreads Review.
