Synopsis

How the British Fell in Love with Food by Lewis Esson

On the 12th April 1984, a group of people in the British food world gathered for lunch at London's first Intercontinental hotel to enjoy a superb lunch devised by the hotel's celebrated chef Peter Kromberg. Among others,Arabella Boxer, Jane Grigson, Michael Smith and Elizabeth David were in attendance.The purpose of this grand event was to discuss the formation of an 'association of food writers'.This became the Guild of FoodWriters. Twenty-five years later, the Guild is now a body of almost 400 members, covering all areas of food writing.This collection of archive articles and essays, including works from award-winning authors Jane Grigson, Katie Stewart, Alan Davidson and Claudia Roden, is a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Guild's formation. From the arrival of the avocado in our supermarkets in the 70s to Food Blogs in the 21st century; from the appearance of nouvelle cuisine to the rise of the celebrity chef, this collection illustrates how Guild members have helped shape the British culinary scene over the last quarter of a century. How the British Fell in Love with Food is also a compendium of mouth-watering dishes, with recipes from Rick Stein, Antonio Carluccio, Mary Berry and others. It is a fascinating historical record and a great recipe book, filled with the classic dishes of the last three decades. This book is a terrific read for anyone interested in food and cooking, and provides a fascinating historical insight into our growing fascination with food and the way we eat now.
