About This Item

UK: Dorling Kindersley, 1988. 288pp, 800g, For Elizabeth David, summer fare meant fresh, seasonal food-recipes that could be prepared quickly and savored slowly, from Gnocchi alla Genovese ('simply an excuse for eating pesto') to La Poule au Pot to Gooseberry Fool. Her 1955 classic work, now reissued in a handsome, attractively priced hardback edition, includes an overview of herbs as well as chapters on impromptu cooking for holidays and picnics.......--........Divided into chapters on Soups, Salads, Eggs, Fish, Meat, Poultry and Game, Vegetables, and Sweets, it contains recipes from all over the world. Summer Cooking is a witty, precise companion for feasting in the warmer months - every bit as unexpected and enchanting to read today as it was 50 years ago. But the purest thrill of Summer Cooking, as in all of her books, is the pleasure her food delivers and the graceful way her prose captures the reader's delight. .......--......... a generous description of this lovely book.........--.......Elizabeth David weaves the ingredients into the methods complete with details of the region, tradition and people. Elizabeth David's acclaimed writings are often cited as an inspiration by many of today's leading chefs, as well as home cooks, and are essential to any serious cookery book collection. Book in beaut condition with very attractive period art to illustrate as well as line art by Adrian Daintrey, a book to savour with a nice chablis or maybe a Pernod & ice.. Hardcover. Very Good/Good/very Good. Illus. by Adrian Daintrey. 25cm.
