Elisabeth Ayrton

Good Simple Cookery from 1958. Elisabeth Ayrton (1910-1991) was a novelist and cookery book writer (one of her daughters is the child psychologist Dr Penelope Leach). In 1952 she married for the second time the painter Michael Ayrton who was the grandson of the pioneering Hertha Ayrton: scientist and suffragette and inspiration for the subject of Edith Zangwill’s novel The Call which we will publish in October this year.
