About the author (2007)

Elisabeth Luard is an award-winning food writer and is the current holder of The Glenfiddich Trophy. In the judges' estimation, "in addition to scooping the much coveted Glenfiddich Trophy, Elisabeth Louard was named best Cookery Writer for her recipes in the The Oldie. Elisabeth's seemingly effortless style of writing, self-drawn illustrations and understanding of the way in which ordinary people's cooking reflects their history, culture, and everyday life, makes her one of the most individual and distinctive food writers of all time." She is a contributing editor to Waitrose Food Illustrated. In the 90's she covered regional cooking in Britain for Country Living, was the food columnist of The Scotsman and The Telegraph. .
