Winner of the 2007 Glenfiddich Trophy, Elisabeth Luard has earned a string of prizes for her unique, intelligent, and engaging food writing.She is the food columnist for The Oldie and a regular contributor to Waitrose Food Illustrated as well as many national newspapers. She is also the author of ten cookbooks and two volumes of autobiography.It was while raising her children in a remote valley in Andalusia in southern Spain and living for a year in the Languedoc in rural France that she acquired an appetite for the feasts and festivals of the peasantry whose lives she shared. It was there that she learned to pickle her own olives, grow and dry her own beans, and clean and pluck a chicken.Throughout her lifetime of travelling, she has worked alongside men and women who cook with instinct, love and devotion and who rely on the thread of ancestral memory rather than recipes committed to paper. It is her hands-on experience with the larders of the world that gives her writing its humanity and eloquence.
'...this is one of the great cook books of all time.'Tom Parker Bowles, Mail on Sunday'...puts other outpourings in the shade, such is its range, passion, erudition and downright deliciousness.'Matthew Fort, The Guardian Weekend'An awesome collection of recipes...Luard writes with authoritative enthusiasm.'Colin Spencer, New Statesman
