    1. After selecting articles to be collected in the anthology An Omelette and a Glass of Wine, some of the unused pieces were saved This book is the collection of those set aside articles Some are interesting than others, but the good ones are real gems The descriptions of several, simple courgette dishes were intriguing Her Hand Made Mayonnaise story is precise, amusing, and makes me want to make mayonnaise Baking an English Loaf goes into great detail and encourages everyone to read a few simple [...]

    2. I enjoy her no nonsense tone I found the history of many of the recipes interesting and many of the recipes would be worth a try The cover is beautiful but not nutmegs Someone should write a biography of this woman who led a full and varied life.

    3. Elizabeth David was a cookery writer who apparently revolutionised British cooking after the Second World War by writing about Mediterranean food So she s sort of the grand daddy of them all, seminal influence, blah blah blah Unfortunately, I really didn t get on with this collection of articles by her I found her writing had a distinct undertone of I m trying to educate you stupid plebs why aren t you listening which was rather off putting, and if she had a sense of humour, it was not allowed o [...]

    4. If I was going to be anyone else, I d like to be Elizabeth David with the looks of Vivien Leigh I want her life, her exotic travels, her ability to rustle up wonderful picnics and dishes and describe them in words without being too gushy and foodie about it all She s dry, sharp, sensuous and no nonsense This is a lovely book to dip into, especially on a Mediterranean holiday It s than just recipes it s also a collection of articles she published in magazines and papers over the years with wonde [...]

    5. I found the writing dull and the collection a bit disconnected I disliked the pushy tone of the writer and did skimming than reading.Description Newly collected writings from one of the 20th century s most influential food writers Recipes from all over the world are annotated and presented in between loosley arranged articles on food topics Known as the grand dame of the kitchen, David has strong opinions and is not afraid to express them.

    6. I only had time to skim this one, but I will go back to it Elizabeth David is a treasure in food writing, and this is a good collection I find her writing personable but also eminently practical and practicable Lots of history in this volume, and adaptation of international experience to an English kitchen.

    7. I love Elizabeth David s writing This book is a selection of a number of her essays with some enjoyable that others I also love the way she writes recipes and has no pictures of the food Would recommend to anyone.

    8. Her writing is always so good I ll probably never make one of her recipes but she s like having a very erudite friend over to dinner.

    9. Four stars for the recipes, and the lovely, if highly opinionated, descriptions of places and a way of life now mostly gone.

    10. Elizabeth David wrote as if she knew that she was the doyenne to be This inspired me whennthe ingredients were still impossible to obtain
