"Decorated with a portrait of twin cherries, yellow runner beans, and the sweet, petite wild strawberries known as frais de bois, to urban eyes starved of July’s sensual delights, the sunny cover of Summer Cooking seems to promise a storybook world…Summer Cooking is a wonderfully subversive volume — every bit as unexpected and enchanting to read today as it must have been 50 years ago…But the purest thrill of Summer Cooking,as in all of David’s volumes, is the nearly pugilistic punch of pleasure her food delivers, and the graceful way her bright, well-mannered prose captures the artist’s fleeting delight…Whether read in bed in a baking tenement or at the breezy desk of a lolling barge, her words still ring like hypnotic prayers." –
