Description
Before there was Julia Child in America, there was Elizabeth David in England. Originally appearing in the 1950s, David's three classic cookbooks—Mediterranean Food, French Country Cooking, and Summer Cooking—were a revelation to British and American cooks alike. "Her books changed my life," avows Alice Waters in her foreword to this edition of David's collected cookbooks. "My entire culinary career since then has been an act of homage—and unconscious plagiarism." Illustrated with occasional ink and woodcut drawings, the omnibus provides American weights and measures, and also includes the foreword from the first American edition of 1980, by James Beard, who notes: "She is to me probably the greatest food writer we have, a purist and perfectionist, intolerant of mediocrity and totally honest, yet not above breaking with tradition to get at what she feels is the essential nature of a dish.... She gives her readers just as much guidance as she feels is necessary, regarding them not as children to be led by the hand but intelligent cooks capable of figuring things out for themselves."
