Publisher Comments:

The first collection of vegetarian recipes from culinary legend Elizabeth David

Elizabeth David revolutionized British cooking, her recipes bringing the color and vibrancy of Mediterranean dishes to kitchens everywhere. This beautiful new cookbook marks the first time Davids beloved vegetable recipes have been collected in one volume and celebrates her lifetimes cooking by featuring a range of delicious, timeless dishes filled with irresistible flavors and scents.

These mouthwatering recipes are accompanied by color photography. Threaded throughout are some of Davids short essays—richly evocative pieces full of history and anecdote as well as practical culinary advice.

Published to celebrate the centenary of Davids birth, Elizabeth David on Vegetables is a must-have for anyone wishing to give vegetables a starring role in the kitchen.

An Omelette and a Glass of Wine, a selection of her journalistic work, was published in 1984. David was made Chevalier de lOrdre du Merite Agricole in 1977, and awarded the OBE in 1976 and the CBE in 1986. In 1982 she was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
