Praise for Claudia Roden:

'Claudia Roden's writing has the fascination of her conversation. Her books are treasure-houses of information and mines of literary pleasures' Observer

'Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet . . .' Simon Schama

'Every one of Claudia's books introduced us to a delicious new world' Sam and Sam Clarke
