Sorry it took so long, but having a 4month old in the house doesn’t give me much time. Our bext CTB book is “Eating for England: The Delights & Eccentricities of the British at Table“ Nigel Slater’s personal portrait of the British and their food. With his witty, warm and nostalgic tone Slater addresses favourite British cuisine staples (high tea, scones, black pudding, Sunday roast etc.) and products (biscuits, chocolates etc) sometimes with love and others with apprehension. He is both entertaining and informative, often focusing on the sociological aspect of foods, painting a vivid portrait of nation whose relationship to food “is unlike any other“. If you have never read any of Nigel Slater’s books or cooked his recipes you are in for a treat, the man is amazing!
