First edition, first impression of the author's most influential work. David (1913-1992) taught herself Mediterranean-style cooking while living abroad during the early 1940s, and began writing a food column for Harper's Bazaar in 1949. Her first book was published to wide acclaim the following year, and she is now recognized for her profound influence on British culinary culture.
