Product description


"Rarely does such a work come to our notice. This is food social history in a class of its own." (Judges of the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Book)

"I am not a 'foodie' or a chef, but a feeder and a cook who neither eats to live nor lives to eat. There is a middle course: to live, and eat well too...There is so much more to life than food, so much connected to it, and so much to be missed by taking it for granted." (Author)

"Food is everything: it gives meaning to the landscape, links the past to the present and secures man and beast to time and place." (Author)

"It's time to reclaim the 'British blueberry' from its all-American image" (Jenni Murray, Radio 4)

Book Description

The food of England redefined - a beautifully written, impassioned plea for us to trace its roots, celebrate its continuity and address its future
