First published in 1962, Elizabeth David's culinary odyssey through provincial France forever changed the way we think about food.

Review:

It is difficult to think of any home that can do without Elizabeth David's French Provincial Cooking. --The Observer

Voted one of the top 45 cookbooks of all time by New York's Village Voice --Village Voice

If I had to go on a desert island I'd take this with me. Elizabeth is brilliant at telling stories about the food she cooks. The text is threaded with memories of the places and people she loved. Being such an emotional writer, you can almost taste the food as you're reading.
--Oz Clarke, The Daily Express

French Provincial Cooking is one of the foundations of the way we cook today - over the past 50 years, it has influenced untold numbers of cooks, restaurant chefs and food writers. --Charles Campion, Country Life
