Notes

Signed limited edition, number 150 of 450 copies signed by the author on the title page. This, the author's landmark second book, was written while rationing was still in force and was first published in 1951. Elizabeth David (1913-1992) taught herself Mediterranean-style cooking while living abroad during the early 1940s, and in 1949 began writing a food column for Harper's Bazaar. Her first book, A Book of Mediterranean Food, was published to wide acclaim the following year, and she is now recognised for her profound influence on British culinary culture.
