PRAISE FOR CLAUDIA RODEN:
'Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet ...' Simon Schama
'Roden's great gift is to conjure up not just a cuisine but the culture from which it springs.' Nigella Lawson
'Beyond the evocative stories and buoyant style ... there is always information ... meticulously collected, compellingly assembled, lovingly told ... informative, delectable and incredibly useful.' Yotam Ottolenghi
