Elizabeth David writing puts her among the great food authors of the world. When many other writers were running to the freezer or the cupboard for a can she was writing about fresh high quality food. A strong advocate of seasonable food, she offers in this book fresh, light and appealing dishes for the summer months. She captures the essence of summer with dishes including Crab Souffle, Fish Kebabs, Terrine of Rabbit, Vitello Tonnato (Cold Veal with a Tuna Sauce) and Iced Strawberry Souffle.
A classic book with plenty of great ideas for summer dining, be it a picnic, a barbecue or an elegant dinner party.
