What is so absolutely marvellous about Elizabeth David’s books is that, apart from being beautifully written, they are full of relevant historical information allied to inspirational recipes. They really make you want to cook because they make you hungry. They are books that make you sit up in bed at night licking your lips and not wanting to put the light out. This is definitely one of those books.
