'Every generation needs an Elizabeth David' Rick Stein
Introduces 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 - foods that have become the staples of our diets today. This title offers twelve chapters that guide the readers from tasty soups and starters, through to meat, fish and desserts.
