Elizabeth David classics : Mediterranean food, French country cooking, Summer cooking by Elizabeth David ( Book )
11 editions published between 1980 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here, together in one volume, are three culinary classics from England's most famous food writer, who has inspired and influenced a whole generation of cooks. Elizabeth David, as James Beard points out in his foreword, "was a leader, ahead of her time" who "shook her readers out of their culinary rut, challenging them to explore a different world of food." Today some of the foods that she introduced to the English-speaking world have become household words, like gazpacho and pesto, but Mrs. David was the first to discover these treasures -- and her recipes are still the best. - Jacket flap

South wind through the kitchen : the best of Elizabeth David by Elizabeth David ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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. South Wind Through the Kitchen is the best of Elizabeth David, selected from her nine books by her literary executor. Here are classic essays on the food of Provence and of Paris, on Italian fish markets and Middle Eastern herb gardens. There are nearly 200 recipes: appetizers, soups, eggs, fish, meat, poultry, vegetables, sauces, breads, preserves, and desserts. Whether discussing the pains of rolling puff pastry or the ease of making pizza, railing against the practices of English bakeries or praising the sausage rolls at the Hotel du Midi, David always speaks her own mind. Best of all, she's a contagious enthusiast: she makes you want to rise from your chair to travel, shop, or try your hand at an omelette."--Publisher's website
