About the Author:

Elizabeth David (1913-1992) was a legendary writer and cook. In 1950, she published Mediterranean Food and along with subsequent books, including Italian Food and French Provincial Cooking, changed the face of cookery in Britain for ever. In her later works she explored the traditions of English cooking and is widely considered Britain's greatest twentieth-century cookery writer. Her books continue to inspire many today, who find her philosophy of simplicity, authenticity, knowledge and care to their liking. She received a CBE in 1986.
