James Beard referred to Elizabeth David (1913-92) as "the greatest food writer we have." David has been credited with bringing French, Italian, and Mediterranean cuisines to England. She penned many books in her adventure-filled life, always providing a cultural context for the recipes. Tonight's six-course menu leans French, featuring escargot, white bean and sorrel soup, oxtails with black olives, and lemon brown-sugar cake with brown-bread ice cream.
