The Cookbook Club: Elizabeth David

Saturdays 6/23 from 10:30am to 1:30pm

New School of Cooking Pasadena

Each month we discuss a significant cookbook and prepare a group meal adapted from its recipes. Here’s what’s on the Cookbook Club menu this month:

A Book of Mediterranean Food by Elizabeth David, 1950
Long acknowledged as the inspiration for Julia Child and Claudia Roden, Elizabeth David introduced Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes to bleak postwar Great Britain, when basics were rationed and fresh food was a fantasy. ($115)

Classes meet at New School of Cooking’s Pasadena campus.
525 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena 91101

Though reading the book prior to each class date is not necessary, it is available for sale here.
