Eating My Words
The truth is that all that we eat is life. We are life feeding on life and we will be eaten in turn. We are gloves slipped over the hand of life. It animates us for a while and then pulls out: same inner substance, different style of glove... So writes Eve Johnson in this wonderful collection of essays written in the style of the great Elizabeth David. Throughout it all, her sense of humour, her love of the unusual and her wit shine through. Anyone interested in food - from candy floss to exotic elixirs - can find it in this book.
