Summer Cooking is a wonderful selection of dishes - for table, buffet or picnic - that are light, easy to prepare and based on seasonal ingredients. Elizabeth David demonstrates how an imaginative use of herbs can enhance simple meals, whether egg, fish or meat. The chapters on hors d'oeuvres, summer soups, vegetables, sauces and sweets are full of ideas for fresh, cool food for the warmer months.
'Britain's most inspirational food writer who ranks among the world's gastronomic greats... Elizabeth David's writing shows no sign of losing its potent appeal, attracting as much respect now as when it was first published.'
'Deserves a place on every keen cook's bookshelves as one of the all-time classic book books.'
