I feel as though I was swindled.

This is a reprint of some pieces already published in the excellent, much better "An Omelette And A Glass of Wine," already on my bookshelf. Do yourself a favor and buy that instead.
Upon receiving a Kindle and gift certificate for my birthday, I ordered "A Taste of the Sun" in the Kindle edition. I have long been a fan of Elizabeth David, who was one of the most important food writers of the Twentieth Century. I was unfamiliar with this title and ordered it. Unfortunately, because the Kindle edition contained no "front matter" to indicate when the material was first published, whether it had been published under another title, or who may have edited it, I was unable to ascertain where this belongs in the Elizabeth David canon. Then I noticed that a long quotation from one of the chapters appears in in Jill Norman's anthology of David, "South Wind through the Kitchen," where an entirely different book is given as its source. Is this an old book under a new title or a rehash of pre-published material? As a collection, it is somewhat uneven. The essays do not always relate to the sunny topic of the title. The chapter on fish soups ends in a funny, very cranky extended quotation from her mentor Norman Douglas that seems somewhat out of place. Her chapter on picnics--in the English grand manner--is decidedly Edwardian. Not all is lost: Through it all, David's witty and elegant prose gives many luminous insights into what cooking and food are about. All the same, lovers of fine food and Elizabeth David would do better to turn to Ruth Reichl's recent "At the Table of Elizabeth David" or "South Wind through the Kitchen."
This was intended for a Christmas gift. The recipient wasn't too thrilled. The entire series published by Penguin Books is really quite clever. They took works by famous individuals, some from the culinary world and reproduced them. I thought it was interesting to read about life in other times. Kudos to Penguin for doing this, anyway!
Elizabeth David never fails.. found wonderful simple recipe ..
