Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185074971X, Hardcover)

The 2,000 year history of British cookery is celebrated in this fully illustrated book, which traces the development of the national diet from our hunter-gatherer ancestors to the Victorian era. Historical events affected our eating habits: the Roman invasion, colonisation of the New World and technological developments during the Industrial Revolution all had an impact. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the introduction ofr bottled and canned products brought about radical changes in food quality and preparation, transforming the diet of rich and poor alike. The book contains many recipes: you can try Boiled Sea Urchins, Smothered Rabbit or Poor Man's Goose, which have been adapted for the modern kitchen and offer a true taste of history.
