The woman who changed British cooking

In the mid-20th century, having travelled parts of Southern Europe, sharing her love for fresh, unusual produce, Elizabeth David introduced the bright new world of European and Mediterranean cooking to a post-war, ration recovering Britain, inspiring household to use ingredients that have now become essential in our daily cooking.

Throughout August, two special Elizabeth David inspired dishes will feature on the A la Carte menu at Pallant Restaurant, for each dish purchased we will be making a donation of £1.00 to Pallant House Gallery. To reserve a table call 01243 770827 or email ku.oc.efacdnatnaruatsertnallapnull@seiriuqne
