Think about that first tickle of hunger in your stomach. A moment ago, you could have been thinking about anything, but now it's thickly buttered marmite toast, a frosty scoop of ice cream straight from the tub, some creamy, cheesy scrambled eggs or a fuzzy, perfectly-ripe peach.

Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures. Food nourishes our bodies, helps us celebrate our successes (from a wedding cake to a post-night out kebab), cheers us up when we're down, introduces us to new cultures and - when we cook and eat together - connects us with the people we love.

In Eat Up, Ruby Tandoh celebrates the fun and pleasure of food, taking a look at everything from gluttons and gourmets in the movies, to the symbolism of food and sex. She will arm you against the fad diets, food crazes and bad science that can make eating guilt-laden and expensive, drawing eating inspiration from influences as diverse as Roald Dahl, Nora Ephron and Gemma from TOWIE.

Filled with straight-talking, sympathetic advice on everything from mental health to recipe ideas and shopping tips, this is a book that clears away the fog, to help you fall back in love with food.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"If you love food, complications and all, then Ruby's incisive manifesto - to enjoy food for what it is - is for you. " - Thomasina Miers

"Eat Up! is a joyous manifesto for flavour and sanity. It will give you more nourishment and wellness - not to mention waffles! - than any number of clean eating books. Tandoh takes in everything from Nepalese chicken dumplings to the science of taste; from blackberrying to the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Ruby Tandoh has written a genre-busting antidote to food-anxiety. You come away from it feeling braver and determined to eat with more freedom and gusto. I loved it." - Bee Wilson
