Together with friends such as Vita Sackville-West and Constance Spry, Elizabeth David was a frequent guest at Benton End. She acquired Cedric Morris' 'The Eggs' (1944) around 1953, and it was used to great effect on the cover of the first edition of An Omelette and a Glass of Wine (1984). She presented the painting to the Tate in 1992.
