Delve into the world of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking inspired by Elizabeth David’s trailblazing cookbook, A Book of Mediterranean Food. Participants learn to make seafood paella, gazpacho, and an elderflower gin fizz, while hearing about David’s influence on postwar English cooking, when olive oil was sold in apothecaries, basics were rationed, and fresh produce was only a fantasy. She has been long acknowledged as the culinary inspiration for Julia Child and Claudia Roden.

The event will be held online via Zoom at 5 p.m. (PDT). Zoom link and recipes will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email. Please check your junk or spam folders if you do not receive a confirmation email upon registration.
