Although some consider Elizabeth David the British counterpart to Julia Child, we think it's fair to say she's a legend in her own right. David traveled throughout Europe, the Middle East, and India during the Second World War and returned to England in 1946 to write the classic Mediterranean Food, followed by five other best-selling cookbooks. A prolific journalist, she was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1982, and a Commander of the British Empire in 1986.
