Great Food, a new themed series by Penguin Books, brings together the sharpest, funniest, most delicious writing about food from the past four hundred years. Featuring twenty authors and kitchen conversations across the centuries, it’s a heady mixture of recipes, literature and distinctive voices from history. This series celebrates food writing as writing and revives forgotten inspirational chefs and writers whose works will inspire cooks and readers everywhere. Great Food offers something for every food lover: the enthusiastic cook who bites the bullet and makes haschiche fudge or mutton with oysters; the armchair foodie, reading for inspiration and pleasure; the social history lover who relishes the chance to peek inside a Victorian kitchen; and anyone who appreciates evocative, intimate and entertaining writing. Available in the UK in a 20-book series, 9 of the titles are available in the US.
