Dramatization of the turbulent life of Elizabeth David, the original domestic goddess. She published her first book of Mediterranean Food in 1950, and went on to write eight more books that have sold more than two million copies worldwide. Her public image was of an elegant, respectable and somewhat austere figure. In reality, Elizabeth was a deeply unconventional person with a profound passion for food, life and men.
