Food writer and author
So much more than mere culinary nostalgic navel gazing, this is a glorious celebration of the recipes that shaped the British palate in the twentieth century, in their very best form. Trust me, you've never tasted a chicken kiev like it.

In fact, anything by the great Simon Hopkinson must be included. If only the list could be longer. One of the best books on post-war British food.

Nostalgia for the food of the seventies and eighties, which is when I was growing up and eating out for the first time.
Author and food historian
Worth it for the lasagna recipe alone. The kind of food I heard about when growing up.
