Additional Details

Description: As Elizabeth David explains in her new introduction, Mediterranean Food, her first book, is based on a collection of recipes she made when she lived in France, Italy, the Greek Islands and Egypt, doing her own cooking and obtaining her information at first hand. 

In these pages will be found recipes evoking all the colour and sun of the Mediterranean: exciting and exotic dishes such as Soupe au Pistou, the Pebronata of Corsica, or the Skordalid of the Greeks. 

Here is a stunning array of recipes from Spain, Provence, Greece, Italy and the Middle East, making use of ingredients from all over the Mediterranean but available in England. The majority of the dishes, however, do not require exotic ingredients, being made with everyday vegetables, herbs, fish and poultry but treated in unfamiliar ways.
