Revisiting “The Rich Tradition”

Elisabeth LuardEPC small

In 1985, Elisabeth Luard published European Peasant Cookery: the Rich Tradition to great acclaim. It rapidly became a go-to book for cooks, food lovers and critics, and was followed in the early 1990s by a television series, titled The Rich Tradition, based on the book, directed by Carmelo Musca of CM Film Productions.

Talking of Food is pleased to stream the series to coincide with the publishing of a revised, expanded and updated edition of European Peasant Cookery.

This short video is an introduction to the series, and will be followed in due course by each of the episodes in turn. The new edition of European Peasant Cookery is currently available, published by Grub Street Publishing in the UK and other countries, and in the United States and Canada under the title The Old World Kitchen, published by Melville House.
