Summer Cooking

London: Museum Press, 1955. Daintrey, Adrian. First Edition. Hardcover. 256 pages. 19 x 13 cm. A beautifully written cookbook - a classic, that should be read, sitting on a lawn chair while plotting your next summer meal. The food writer, Molly O'Neill said it best when she wrote: "Cooking wasn't a science to David; it was an art. Recipes today are created to be followed literally and slavishly, the culinary equivalent to paint-by-numbers. The recipes that David wrote nearly half a century ago are broad strokes on a canvas - she leaves the details to the cook, and for this reason, her recipes are neither dated nor dowdy, they are alive." Interior crisp and clean. Boards water stained, dust wrapper chipped with 8 cm. loss to front cover/spine. In protective mylar cover. Blue/green boards. Good in good dust wrapper. Item #2227

Price: $850.00
