Sacred food : cooking for spiritual nourishment

by:Luard, Elisabeth

Food nourishes our souls and plays a vital role in both religious ceremonies and secular celebrations. Sacred Food takes readers on an evocative and personal journey exploring dishes that are traditionally served at significant moment in human life-birth, puberty, courtship, betrothal and marriage, death, and burial and remembrance-and illuminates how and why we celebrate with food. Elisabeth Luard reveals why we bury eggs in bread loves at Easter, bob for apples at Halloween, eat sweet things while courting, and make circular breads and sugared skulls at times of death and mourning. She examines the culinary instincts that unite and divide cultures and studies those foods that have universal significance, such as seeds, eggs, and grain proclaiming new life and hope.

Family life : birth, death, and the whole damn thing

by:Luard, Elisabeth

Not everyone keeps an eagle owl in the spare bedroom cupboard, plays chess for the French Foreign Legion, or goes to school on an obstinate donkey. But this was all just a day in the life of the four Luard children. For the Luards, growing up as their family travelled across Europe, life was a series of adventures. Yet no family is immune to tragedy, and in Francesca, the eldest of three daughters, we find a true heroine. Honest, perceptive and passionate, she tells her own story - until she can tell it no more. Full of anecdotes and peppered with their favourite recipes, Family Life is an extraordinary story of joy, grief and, above all - love. Elisabeth Luard gives a truthful and moving mother's account of their unconventional, unforgettable tale.

Squirrel pie (and other stories) : adventures in food across the globe

by:Luard, Elisabeth

"Elisabeth Luard, one of the food world's most entertaining and evocative writers, has travelled extensively throughout her life, meeting fascinating people, observing different cultures and uncovering extraordinary ingredients in unusual places. In this enchanting food memoir, she shares tales and dishes gathered from her global ramblings. With refreshing honesty and warmth, she recounts anecdotes of the many places she has visited: scouring for snails in Crete, sampling exotic spices in Ethiopia and tasting pampered oysters in Tasmania. She describes encounters with a cellarer-in-chief and a mushroom-king, and explains why stress is good news for fruit and vegetables, and how to spot a truffle lurking under an oak tree. Divided into four landscapes - rivers, islands, deserts and forests - Elisabeth's stories are coupled with more than fifty authentic recipes, each one a reflection of its unique place of origin, including Boston bean-pot, Hawaiian poke, Cretan bouboutie, mung-bean roti, roasted buttered coffee beans, Anzac biscuits and Sardinian lemon macaroons. Illustrated with Elisabeth's own sketches, Squirrel Pie will appeal to anyone with a taste for travel, and an affinity for that most universal of languages, food."--Publisher's description.
