Description
Elizabeth David's contributions to American cuisine are as enduring and profound as those of Julia Child and M. F. K. Fisher, but even so, relatively little is known of the complex woman whose books and essays have so transformed the lives of generations of women. This authorized biography recounts her journey from a privileged childhood to the gritty world of the theater, her internment in fascist Italy with her married lover on charges of espionage, and her subsequent flight to Egypt for the last four years of World War II, where her contemporaries included Lawrence Durrell and Olivia Manning.

The fascinating story of a woman whose life was as spicy and flavorful as her cooking, Writing at the Kitchen Table offers the most complete account available of this culinary legend.
