French Country Cooking.
Decorated by John Minton.
First edition of the author’s landmark second book, written while rationing was still in force. David (1913–1992) taught herself Mediterranean-style cooking while living abroad during the early 1940s, and in 1949 she began writing a food column for Harper’s Bazaar. Her first book was published to wide acclaim the following year, and she is now recognised for her profound influence on British culinary culture.
