Behind the scenes
Heart of the Home | April 2022
Pride of place on my kitchen bookshelf is reserved for the works of Elizabeth David. She had an extraordinary life: rebelling against the expectations of an upper-class English family, she travelled with her lover by boat from England to Antibes and then Sicily, where she was briefly held as a suspected spy. She then went via Yugoslavia to Greece, but in 1941 was forced to flee the invading Germans and escaped to Cairo. Back in London after the war she started to write about cookery – and in the following decades she introduced thousands of English people who had never cooked with such exotic ingredients as aubergines, basil, garlic or olive oil, to the delights of Mediterranean cuisine.
