Elisabeth Luard


Elizabeth Luard started life as a natural history artist. Her interest in landscape and its influence on the cuisine of the area led to the writing of her first book, European Peasant Cookery.  As an introduction to the filmed conversation between Elisabeth and publisher Anne Dolamore, a reading from the book preceeds the video.
