Enter to win one of 10 copies!

One of the foremost authorities on European cuisine (and an expert forager!), food writer Elisabeth Luard pays tribute to the foundations of modern Western cooking in "The Old World Kitchen: The Rich Tradition of European Peasant Cooking," a cookbook with 300+ recipes compiled from 25 years of travel and research in rural France, Spain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, and more.

First published in 1987, her book is part recipe resource, part historical record, brimming with food-related anecdotes and traditions that anchor each dish in culture and time. Expect this collection of recipes to become your go-to guide to the simple, delicious, and surprisingly exotic dishes of peasant Europe. Recipes range from French Oatmeal Soup, Spanish Bean Stew, British Steak-and-Kidney Pudding, and more. Classic dishes (think Ratatouille and Hollandaise Sauce) are also included. Savor each bite and story as you uncover the food of the past.
