9780140460278: A Book of Mediterranean Food

A Book of Mediterranean Food is Elizabeth David first book, and made her a favourite with foodies everywhere.

Originally published in 1950 A Book of Mediterranean Food is based on a collection of recipes she made while living in France, Italy, the Greek islands and Egypt.

She gives us hearty pasta and polenta dishes from Italy; aromatic and tangy salads from Turkey and Greece; and tasty seafood and saffron dishes from Spain.

Whether it is the simplicity of hummus or the delicious blending of flavours found in plates of ratatouille or paella, Elizabeth David's wonderful recipes in A Book of Mediterranean Food are imbued with all the delights of the sunny south.
