Spices, Salt and Aromatics in the English Kitchen, Hardback Book

Spices, Salt and Aromatics in the English Kitchen Hardback


In this most elusive of her books, Elizabeth David presents English recipes notable for their use of spices, salt and aromatics.

As is usual in her writing she mixes instruction with information, explaining the origins and uses of ingredients such as nutmeg, cardamom and juniper.

She stresses the influence of centuries of oriental trade on the English kitchen, where spices and Indian curries, kebabs and yoghurt are now perfectly at home, along with dishes such as risotto and paella.
