'Who are these people? Look at what they eat.'

Simon Majumdar travels the country to find out what British food - from Arbroath Smokies to Welsh rarebit to chicken tikka masala - reveals about British identity. Exploring the history of British food, he celebrates the wealth of fare on offer today, and meets the people all over the country - the farmers, the fishermen, the brewers, bakers and cheese makers - who have given the British reason to love their food again.

Join Simon as he becomes a judge at the Great British Pie Competition (where, to his sorrow, he ends up judging vegetarian pies), as he learns to make Balti with a true Brummie, hunts for grouse, and sees seaside rock being made in Blackpool. EATING FOR BRITAIN is an impassioned and hilarious journey into the meaning of eating British.

MEDIA REVIEWS
His enthusiasm for the food - and its producers - is infectious. Eating for Britain is stuffed with fascinating facts that will have you yearning for a Lancashire hot pot or proper fish and chips * Financial Times *
'Simon Majumdar knows his sh** . . . Plus - the bastard can write' * Anthony Bourdain, author of KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL *
'Majumdar writes like a dream and eats like a pig. It's a killer combination. Eat My Globe is a very funny, very hungry book, much like its author' * Jay Rayner, Observer food critic *
'Personal, enthusiastic and very certain about what's good' * Observer *
