I bought this as a gift for a friend who has over 3,000 books on food. To my delight not only did she not have this book but she thoroughly enjoyed reading it and learnt a few new things too. That's about the best recommendation I can give.

Nice bite sized nuggets of information on food, some known and some unknown and some just plain weird. An easy book to pick up when you want a bite of a book.

Love this book. A very engaging look at food through the ages in a light hearted but informative style. A great present for almost anyone with even a passing interest in the origins of English food heritage.
