Elizabeth David rocked!!
24 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It gets 8 of 10

because Elizabeth David rocked - but I have not yet seen it because BBC American doesn't seem to require programming skills in their higher ups (and after what all the stations/public did to Benny Hill, they don't deserve him - but thats for another time). Basically, like MFK Fisher in the US, Elizabeth - almost single handed - saved British cooking after WWII by bringing back decent cooking/food preparation and a respect for (particularly) French and Italian Cuisines. Fisher was born about two years earlier than David and both died within a five or less month period in 1992. Both are worth reading and reading about and a biographical film about Fisher would not be at all amiss. Oddly, though they apparently never met, supposedly David disliked Fisher - no idea if Fisher felt the same or not.
