'Yes, it's good. It's great. But we're British, and we don't have to bang on about it all the time.' In Britain, we have always had an awkward relationship with food. We've been told for so long that we are terrible cooks and yet according to a 2012 YouGov survey, our traditional food and drink are more important than the monarchy and at least as significant as our landscape and national monuments in defining a collective notion of who we are. Taking nine archetypically British dishes - Pie and Peas, A Cheese Sandwich, Fish and Chips, Spag Bol, Devonshire Cream Tea, Curry, The Full English, The Sunday Roast and a Crumble with Custard - and examining them in their perfect context, Pete Brown reveals just how fundamental food is to our sense of identity, perhaps even our sense of pride, and the ways in which we understand our place in the world.… (mer)

A friend of mine picked this up while he was in London on business. I had never heard of Mr. Brown, my friend just knew that I had a particular fondness for a Full English Breakfast (usually while watching an Aston Villa game - UP THE AV!!!). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Mr Brown's writing. It is not only an overview of English comfort food, it is a critique of modern foodie culture and modern life in general. The book certainly brings the British class snobbery into focus, particularly with Fish and Chips being a lower class item, but also the modern tendency to have small local eateries being pushed out in the name of progress (and therefore allowing for higher rents) and replaced by chains. He proposes, and I whole heartedly agree, that there is nothing wrong with trying adventurous foods, but there is also nothing wrong and nothing to look down upon, by having the occasional bit of comfort.

The book starts off well, with a good idea to celebrate British food, unfortunately the authors way of dragging the chapter out with useless information, means the book is a slog and a half. By the middle I just skipped through reading snippet s, skipping all the same waffle included in all the chapters. ( )
