The British have a relationship with their food that is unlike that of any other country. Once something that was never discussed in polite company, it is now something with which the nation is obsessed. But are we at last developing a food culture, or are we just going through the motions?

Eating for England is an entertaining, detailed, and somewhat tongue-in-cheek observation of the British and their food, their cooking, their eating, and how they behave in restaurants, with chapters on, amongst other things, dinner parties, funeral teas, Indian restaurants, dieting, and eating while under the influence. Written in Nigel Slater's trademark readable style, Eating for England highlights our idiosyncratic attitude towards the fine art of dining.

    " Too many sweets but otherwise the usual Nigel Slater foodie porn to stay up late getting hungry to. He's a national treasure, especially for dentists. "

    " "I cannot go any further without mentioning my favourite biscuit of all time, now sadly, tragically, extinct. The oaty, crumbly, demerara notes of the long-forgotten Abbey Crunch will remain forever on my lips. I loved the biscuit as much as anything I have ever eaten, and often, in moments of solitude, I still think about its warm, buttery, sugary self." "

    " really liked this, foody and funny. Couldn't put it down hence reading it in record time! Found myself laughing at and agreeing to alot of things - especially related to the entry regarding Toblerone and how it is impossible to break it or bite it which inevitably ends up with whole triangle being crammed into mouths sideways! Loved the mention of Custard Creams, Murray Mints, Scones, Rock, Marmite etc etc - had it also included the Nutty Bar of the late 70's and early 80's, Appeal Powdered Orange Juice Ice Magic and Soda Streams - it would have been perfect! Sit down with a cup of tea and devour this book. "

    " You can keep your Fifty Shades Of Grey - Nigel's description of how to properly eat a Kit Kat will make ladies ovulate and grown men weep. "
