A Book of Mediterranean Food

Long acknowledged as the inspiration for such modern masters as Julia Child and Claudia Roden, A Novel of Mediterranean Food is Elizabeth David 's passionate mixture of recipes, culinary lore, and jame talk. In bleak postwar Great Britain, when basics were rationed and fresh food a fantasy, David set about to cheer herself -- and her audience -- up with dishes from the west of France, Italy, pain, ortugal, Greece, and the Middle East. Some are sumptuous, many are simple, most are sublime.

I still credit her with the wonderful sense of adventure I feel standing over a hot stove and the subtlety of celebration as I sit down to share in a meal and good stories with friends.
