9780091878214: Food: A 20th-Century Anthology

This is a collection of the very best writing about food of the last 100 years. This anthology of food covers the classics, such as the French chef Escoffier as well as the modern, such as Jane Grigson. It includes entries from Orwell, Steinbeck and Hemmingway, and the Monty Python's ode to spam!

From the Publisher:

Among the 200 writers represented in this illustrated anthology of culinary literature (which covers everything from Apples to Zucchini) are many readers will expect to find: Julia Child, Elizabeth David, James Beard, Escoffier. But there are lots of surprises ‹ writers like John Steinbeck, Evelyn Waugh, Virginia Woolf, Bruce Chatwin, and Len Deighton. Humor is richly represented (including Monty Python¹s immortal ³Spam²). There are songs and poems by Cole Porter and Hilaire Belloc; and fascinating finds, such as accounts of King Edward VII¹s coronation banquet. All these are placed in delightful context with Clarissa Dickson Wright¹s informed and witty introductions. A must for food lovers.

From Booklist:

Just about everyone recognizes Clarissa Dickson Wright as half of television's Two Fat Ladies. Wright's gusto and zest for life and good food and drink shines through Food, an anthology of food writing. Although few recipes grace these pages, the brief excerpts from a wide range of authors celebrate passion for well-prepared food and lusty living. Under the heading "Queer" appears a delightful rendition of ways to make hedgehog and squirrel palatable. Brilliant photos and bright reproductions of wartime posters make the book a graphic-design treasure. Wright's beloved television persona will increase demand for this book. Mark Knoblauch
