Review

Had me at the first sentence (Nigel Slater)

Zingy, fresh, and unexpected: Annie Gray, the queen of food historians, finds her perfect subject. A book to devour (Lucy Worsley)

Annie Gray is a brilliant writer and scholar who brings a glorious combination of enthusiasm and greed to every subject she tackles. In the field of food history she leads the pack. (Jay Rayner)

In this wonderfully researched and entertaining book, Gray uncovers a slice of royal history which until now has been completely ignored. (Jane Ridley Spectator 2017-05-26)

[A] delicious portrait (Daisy Goodwin Mail on Sunday 2017-06-04)

'The best - and most popular - rooms in any National Trust property are always the kitchens. It is there, rather than the grand staterooms, that we are able to visualise what life was really like in the past. In The Greedy Queen Annie Gray replicates those kitchens in book form, conjuring up for her readers both the elaborate banquets and the quiet family dinners of Queen Victoria and her household. Never has history seemed quite as delicious as in these pages.' (Judith Flanders)

I'm avid to tuck in. (Rachel Cooke Guardian 2017 non-fiction picks)

One of the most fascinating royal biographies I have read ... Culinary biography is a relatively undersubscribed genre, but this biographer and subject show off its great potential ... Gray writes with great authority, verve and confidence (Paula Byrne Times 2017-05-06)

Gray does an excellent job ... This is fascinating material, extracted from the archives by some fine forensic reading. (Kathryn Hughes TLS 2017-05-19)

If we are what we eat, then what was Victoria? This brilliant first book by Annie Gray wastes no time in telling us ... Gray's oeuvre is deeply satisfying ... her tone is lively, her pace jaunty. (Cate Devine Herald 2017-06-02)

Book Description

Full of original research, Annie Gray's first book considers Britain's most iconic monarch from a new perspective, telling the history of British dining culture along the way.
