  Elizabeth David 17 Jan 2006  
Life and loves of the revolutionary food writer

Elizabeth David was something of a revolutionary in post-war Britain, writing about Mediterranean dishes involving olive oil and avocados at a time when British people were still grappling with ration books. But as well as being years ahead of her time in the kitchen, David was also a very sexually liberated woman, who took both male and female lovers and led an open marriage.

"Elizabeth David - A Life in Recipes" is on BBC TWO, 17 January 2006.
