Is there a nutmeg in the house? by Elizabeth David( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GENERAL COOKERY & RECIPES. This anthology of Elizabeth David's work, originally published in hardback in 2000, is a direct sequel to An Omelette and a Glass of Wine. It again contains a selection of her journalistic and occasional work from four decades. Much of it she had chosen herself for reprinting in this more accessible form. In addition there is a considerable amount of unpublished material found in her own files, or contributed by friends to whom she had given recipes, or to whom she had sent letters, either with notes in answer to queries or giving details of current research. None of the material here appears in any of her other nine books. The emphasis throughout is on the practical aspects of cooking and eating, and the book contains over 150 recipes. These stem from many different countries, but they all have Elizabeth David's unmistakable personal touch - a Mediterranean tomato consomme or a typically English raspberry ice cream

Harvest of the cold months : the social history of ice and ices by Elizabeth David( Book )

"From sixteenth-century Italy and the splendor of the Medici banquets to seventeenth-century France and the Sun King, from travelers' tales of snow pits and ice houses in Persia to the sherbet trade with the Levant to the use of ice as "table jewelry," and from the influential ice trade in Boston to the growth of the ice cream business in London, this impressive books brings alive the centuries in which ice, far from being a commonplace, was a subject that inspired and challenged the human imagination."--Jacket

South wind through the kitchen : the best of Elizabeth David by Elizabeth David( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elizabeth David (1913-1992) changed the way we think about, write about, prepare, and enjoy food. Her first two books, Mediterranean Food (1950) and French Country Cooking (1951), were a celebration of everything fresh, tasty, simple, and delightful, and they struck a decisive one-two punch against British postwar cooking. David's wit, her love of pleasure, her appeal to the senses and the imagination - not to mention her delicious recipes - sparked a revolution of taste in Great Britain: boiled carrots and canned ham suddenly gave way to olive oil and sea salt, sprigs of rosemary and whole basil leaves, seasonal produce and fresh pasta. Here was something new in the cold, gray world: a food writer who was stimulating, opinionated, informative, and funny, a wonderful companion in both the library and the kitchen. South Wind Through the Kitchen is the best of Elizabeth David, selected from her nine books by her literary executor. Here are classic essays on the food of Provence and of Paris, on Italian fish markets and Middle Eastern herb gardens. There are nearly 200 recipes: appetizers, soups, eggs, fish, meat, poultry, vegetables, sauces, breads, preserves, and desserts. Whether discussing the pains of rolling puff pastry or the ease of making pizza, railing against the practices of English bakeries or praising the sausage rolls at the Hotel du Midi, David always speaks her own mind. Best of all, she's a contagious enthusiast: she makes you want to rise from your chair to travel, shop, or try your hand at an omelette."--Publisher's website
