About This Item

London: The Cookery Book Club, 1966. Second revised. Very Good/fair. No home should be without this book especially if you are a big Elizabeth David fan. For those who take an interest in the pleasures and problems of the table and have never been to France and enjoyed the many things each region has to offer this is a must. Of course her writing is very clear cut and full of prose. Blue boards with writing to spine and embossed picture to cover. Dustjacket rubbed and creased and slight tear to back cover. Mylar covered. Some staining to head leaves. Very nice addition to this authors collection. First Edition


It is difficult to think of any home that can do without Elizabeth David's FRENCH PROVINCIAL COOKING...One could cook for a lifetime on the book alone' - Observer Elizabeth David succeeds in inducing a desire to use each recipe as soon as it is read. Whether she is describing the preparation of a plain green salad, or the marinading of a haunch of wild boar, she writes with the same imaginative directness. Recipes like 'pot au feu' are described in all their delicious simplicity, which, it is made clear, means cooking without elaboration and has nothing to do with the higgledy piggledy 'let's hope it's all right' technique. Some excellent advice is included on the choice of the tools that would always be needed in any kitchen.
