Italian Food by Elizabeth David
Book DescriptionIn Italian Food, Elizabeth David was the first to help us understand the real country cooking of Italy. Italian Food was an inspiration to British cooks when it was first published in 1954 - and it remains so to this day. Embracing the variety, richness and vibrancy of Italian cooking, with particularly reference to regional variation, Elizabeth David provides a magnificent and inspiring collection of favourite dishes as well as those more rarely encountered. With straightforward recipes for meals such as Piedmontese cheese fondue, fettuccine with fresh tomato sauce and chicken breasts with ham and cheese, Elizabeth David brings us the authentic taste of Italian food. 'Elizabeth David's clear and unpretentious directions for the enjoyment of good food have never been surpassed' Daily Mail 'Not only did she transform the way we cooked but she is a delight to read' Express on Sunday 'Britain's most inspirational food writer' Independent 'When you read Elizabeth David, you get perfect pitch. There is an understanding and evocation of flavours, colours, scents and places that lights up the page' Guardian 'Not only did she transform the way we cooked but she is a delight to read' Express on Sunday Elizabeth David (1913-1992) is the woman who changed the face of British cooking. Having travelled widely during the Second World War, she introduced post-war Britain to the sun-drenched delights of the Mediterranean and her recipes brought new flavours and aromas into kitchens across Britain. After her classic first book Mediterranean Food followed more bestsellers, including French Country Cooking, Summer Cooking, French Provincial Cooking, Italian Food, Elizabeth David's Christmas and At Elizabeth David's Table.

Demonstrates the talent that made author the most celebrated food writer of her time.
US Kirkus Review » On the whole, a more alluring introduction to and interesting presentation of that most savory cuisine that Wilma LaSasso's The All Italian Cookbook which appeared earlier this year- this too makes the best use of many traditional dishes. They may also be unfamiliar to American who only know "certain dubious concoctions..minestrone, spaghetti" etc. Along with a general foreword and some specific instructions on the "store cupboard" and equipment and quantities, there are interesting historical and regional facts about the foods you will be serving, throughout the text, and drawings by Renato Guttuso. From antipasti to conserves, there are many, many dishes which do not all demand too experienced a hand or exhaustive preparation. Some have already appeared in the pages of Harper's Bazaar which assures the cachet of the gourmet. (Kirkus Reviews)
