About the Author:
Jack Cecil Drummond was born in 1891 and educated at King's College, London, where he studied chemistry. His working life was spent at the leading edge of theoretical nutrition. For twenty years he was Professor of Biochemistry at University College, London, where he met his wife Anne Wilbraham. During the Second World War he worked as scientific adviser to the Ministry of Food. He was knighted in 1944 and in 1945 he embarked on a new post-war career as research director of the Boots Pure Drug Company. An early member of Andre Simon's Wine and Food Society, he was a man of well-rounded interests with a remarkable gift for communication. Tom Jaine was brought up in and around The Hole in the Wall, the famous Bath restaurant owned by his stepfather George Perry-Smith. After reading history at Balliol College, Oxford, he worked for six years with the Royal Commission on Historical Documents. In 1973 he became partner in The Carved Angel Restaurant in Darmouth and in 1984 he started The Three Course Newsletter, a bi-monthly publication which carries articles on food and food history. Tom Jaine is Editor of the Journal of the International Wine and Food Society. His publications include Cooking in the Country and Cosmic Cuisine. Since 1989 he has been Editor of The Good Food Guide.
