Details

From the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution, the Romans to the Regency, few things have mirrored society or been affected by its upheavals as much as the food we eat and the way we prepare it. Hear from Kate Colquhoun as she celebrates every aspect of our cuisine from Anglo-Saxon feasts and Tudor banquets, through the skinning of eels and the invention of ice cream, to Dickensian dinner-party excess and the growth of frozen food.

Kate Colquhoun is the author The Thrift Cookbook, Taste: The Story of Britain Through its Cooking and also of A Thing in Disguise: The Visionary Life of Joseph Paxton, which was shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize 2004 and longlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize 2003. As a food historian and campaigner against food waste she appears regularly on national radio and television. She lives in London.
