Elizabeth David Dinner Menu

Excited does not begin to describe how Jamie and I feel about our upcoming Elizabeth David Dinner and Discussion at All The Best Fine Foods, June 19th. (If you’re reading this, then you’ve likely been invited – there are still a few spots left: click here to secure a seat at the table.)

Jane Rodmell, who will lead our discussion of the impact and influence of one of the Twentieth Century’s most influencial food writers in between courses has worked with the All The Best kitchen to come up with the menu below, entirely derived from Elizabeth David’s famous books like Mediterranean Food and French Provincial Cooking.

    Absolutely cannot wait! So looking forward to this!

      Me too. I think we’ll have a really interesting mix of French and Ontario wines, too. I am a little intimidated by the guest list so far: at least one has met Elizabeth David. This is a crowd that takes the pleasures of the table seriously.

  2. Elizabeth David Picnic Day was an event we started up this year on the Sunday nearest the day she died, May 22, 20 years ago. Next year will be the centenary of her birth, but that falls in December. So we are trying to start a tradition of Elizabeth David Picnic Days in May when people everywhere will just go out and enjoy a picnic — see the website. Hope your dinner goes well!
