Not long after the retreat of the last Ice Age, modern staples such as cod, cabbage, onions and beetroot had already found their way into the British islanders' diet. In this stimulating follow-up to British Food, Spencer examines the historical forces that have influenced what we eat and the way we eat it: landscape, climate, the development of farming, the introduction of foreign foodstuffs, and the constant innovation in food technology.
