Elizabeth David is the woman who changed the face of British cooking. She introduced a dreary post-war Britain to the sun-drenched culinary delights of the Mediterranean; to foods like olive oil and pasta, artichokes and fresh herbs. Her recipes brought colour and life into kitchens everywhere, yet her books never contained any photographs. Now, this beautiful new collection celebrates her most inspiring, everyday recipes in glorious colour photography.
'She was a true trailblazer, a woman who has inspired the finest cooks in the country, whether they realise it or not.' -- Jamie Oliver
