As a consequence of the expanding empire, new and exotic foodstuffs such as coffee, sugar and curry powder began to arrive in Britain during the Georgian period. Following the ingredients came foreign (mainly French) chefs and much innovation and progress in the culinary arts, with new techniques and equipment being taken up in domestic as well as commercial kitchens. In this book an historian of 'kitchenalia' examines cooking, dining and eating during a seminal era of British culinary history.
