Book Description

Handsomely illustrated by John Minton, this is Elizabeth David's second book. Most of her recipes 'derive from French regional and peasant cookery, which, at its best, is the most delicious in the world; cookery which uses raw materials to the greatest advantage without going to the absurd lengths of the complicated and so-called Haute Cuisine'.
