From the publisher

A direct sequel to bestselling AN OMLETTE AND A GLASS OF WINE, this anthology contains a selection of Elizabeth David's journalistic and occasional writing as well as material from her files, letters and notes, none of which has appeared in any of her nine previous books. This book is characterized by her famous elegance and wit, and, of course, her passion for food: its history, myriad possibilities and role in civilized society. 'The Blessed Elizabeth David holds a unique position in therecent history of British gastronomy. Her real skill is in her narrative and this compilation provides many examples of what she is best recognized for.' Alastair Little in the Evening Standard
