not as interesting as expected

by William A on Jan 2, 2014

Good but not as clear and original as expected from her cookbooks.


delightful, as usual

by pica on Jan 21, 2010

David is a splendid writer.who writes about food and cookery. Her books not only provide wonderful recipes, clearly and simply presented, but great reading. These short essays cum recipes are a joy to read, informative, surprising...the perfect gift for foodies who need a book that loses nothing by being read in brief sittings.


Gastronomic daydreams

by Rosanne on Jul 8, 2009

Elizabeth David's writings on food are scholarly, eloquent, thorough, and never condescending - she assumes you know your way around a kitchen. Just the thing for the armchair traveller. She is that rare thing - a food writer that offers tastes for the mind as well as the tongue. Not for the beginner, I should think, although you never know. Why not be brave? New fans might find her a bit of a snob, but if you can get past some initial prissiness, you'll find plenty of things to inspire you in the kitchen (and make you wish that you could get such ingredients here. As if.). David is an acquired taste that, once acquired, will bring you years of culinary satisfaction.
