About the Author:

She works in a garden shed near Cambridge.
Review:
"An energetic and refreshing account of a little considered aspect of British history ... Collingham skillfully provides a full account of complex, even chaotic international connections ... It's hard to think of a more ingenious way of treating imperial history... The range is dazzling... The Hungry Empire, it should be clear, is supported by meticulous historical research... This book's treatment of food in the empire is innovative and exciting; to bring such vibrancy to an old topic is a remarkable achievement" -- Kwasi Kwarteng * Guardian * "Joyously delicious...In her original and supremely captivating book, [Collingham] has cleverly recreated the fine details of some 20 meals, consumed for four and a half centuries in a variety of homes and ships and tented encampments far from the motherland...In British terms, she is Henry Mayhew and Mass-Observation rolled into one-a stellar observer of the day-to-day and the mundane, a social historian of extraordinary talent" * New York Times Book Review * "One of the charms of this book is that Collingham includes recipes and menus from many periods and colonies ... This is a wholly pleasing book, which offers a tasty side dish to anyone exploring the narrative history of the British Empire ... it is droll to be reminded how many sought merely a square meal." -- Max Hastings * Sunday Times * "Lizzie Collingham's fascinating new book, The Hungry Empire, demonstrates that a cup of tea is never just a cup of tea - it is a history of trade, exchange, land-grab, agricultural innovation and economic change... This is a marvellously wide-ranging and readable book, stuffed with engaging details and startling connections" -- Lucy Lethbridge * Financial Times * "Revelatory ... The Hungry Empire is an original and thought-provoking book and for all the shocking accounts of the consequences of British appetites, a highly entertaining one." -- Daisy Goodwin * The Times *
