The Cookbook Club: Elizabeth David's A Book of Mediterranean Food
Each month a significant cookbook will be chosen for discussion and hands-on cooking.
In June, it's "A Book of Mediterranean Food" by Elizabeth David, 1950. Long acknowledged as the inspiration for Julia Child and Claudia Roden, David introduced Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes to bleak postwar Great Britain, when basics were rationed and fresh food was a fantasy.
Join Maite to discuss this cookbook and prepare a 6-course meal adapted from its recipes.
Refunds require 5-day cancellation notification.
