    This magisterial tome from the late, much lamented television presenter offers a chronological survey of the nation's eating habits from the age of mead and venison to that of prawn cocktail and pizza. An appendix provides a selection of traditional recipes such as Game Casserole and Mackerel with Fennel and Mint. Written with her characteristic wit and erudition, this is both a book about England's national food and a richly entertaining and informative social history.
