About this book
Reveals a world of simply prepared and delicious foods and stimulates the imagination with tales from far and near in Claudia Roden's elegant, discursive style. It offers the conventional and the exotic, from Middle Eastern street food to the high grassy plains in Mexico to the English tradition of picnics in the park. *Also appeared in August 2012 Buyer's Notes*
From all over Europe from Scotland to the Mediterranean, from Hungary to Cornwall, Elisabeth Luard has collected descriptions of traditional feasts and festivals, many of which she has experienced first hand, and hundreds of recipes for the dishes appropriate to them.
