This is a collection of the very best writing about food of the last 100 years. This anthology of food covers the classics, such as the French chef Escoffier as well as the modern, such as Jane Grigson. It includes entries from Orwell, Steinbeck and Hemmingway, and the Monty Python's ode to spam!

Among the 200 writers represented in this illustrated anthology of culinary literature (which covers everything from Apples to Zucchini) are many readers will expect to find: Julia Child, Elizabeth David, James Beard, Escoffier. But there are lots of surprises ‹ writers like John Steinbeck, Evelyn Waugh, Virginia Woolf, Bruce Chatwin, and Len Deighton. Humor is richly represented (including Monty Python¹s immortal ³Spam²). There are songs and poems by Cole Porter and Hilaire Belloc; and fascinating finds, such as accounts of King Edward VII¹s coronation banquet. All these are placed in delightful context with Clarissa Dickson Wright¹s informed and witty introductions. A must for food lovers.
