Picnics and Other Outdoor Feasts
Picnics reveals a world of simply prepared and delicious foods and stimulates the imagination with tales from far and near in Claudia Roden’s elegant, discursive style. It offers the conventional and the exotic: from the street food of the Middle East and Mediterranean, the festivals of the high grassy plains of Mexico to the English traditions of picnicking in parks, at Glyndebourne and shooting-lunches on the moors. This is a book for any season and any climate. It is a book to cook from and a book to read and the reissue of this classic will be welcomed by all lovers of Claudia Roden’s writings. Claudia Roden is the one of the country’s leading food writers, her New Book of Middle Eastern Food is now regarded as a classic work and her Book of Jewish Food won both the Andre Simon and Glenfiddich Awards. She has won no less than 5 Glenfiddich Awards and has recently won the prestigious Prince Claus Award for achievement in culture. She lives in London.
