Divided into chapters on Soups, Salads, Eggs, Fish, Meat, Poultry and Game, Vegetables, and Sweets, it contains recipes from all over the world. “Summer Cooking” is a witty, precise companion for feasting in the warmer months – every bit as unexpected and enchanting to read today as it was 50 years ago.
