Sarah Broadhurst's view...

In the words of the author “Eating for England is simply a personal celebration of the food this nation cherishes, the rituals we observe, the curious and even the eccentric thing that is the British and their food.” Think of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, bacon sandwiches, apple crumble, even kit-kat or Murray mints and Nigel has a place for them all. Add the Indian restaurants, fish and chips and a host of other dining out experiences and you get an idea of what this lovely book is about … it’s about our attitudes to food … and it’s a pure delight.

Synopsis

Eating for England by Nigel Slater

The British have a relationship with their food that is unlike that of any other country. Once something that was never discussed in polite company, it is now something with which the nation is obsessed. But are we at last developing a food culture or are we just going through the motions?

‘Eating for England’ is an entertaining, detailed and somewhat tongue-in-cheek observation of the British and their food, their cooking, their eating and how they behave in restaurants, with chapters on – amongst other things – dinner parties, funeral teas, Indian restaurants, dieting and eating whilst under the influence.

Written in Nigel Slater’s trademark readable style, ‘Eating for England’ highlights our idiosyncratic attitude towards the fine art of dining.
