"From West Country cider brewers to Yorkshire tripe dressers, Tom meets the punters and producers at the heart of our food traditions. He samples the very best of real English food: Bury black pudding, home-cured Wiltshire bacon and the planet's finest cheddar. But Full English is no paean to an imagined land where yokels sip ale together while chomping on pork pies. Tom's quest delves beneath the surface to unearth the real story behind our eating habits, and what the food of today says about us: organic heaven or mass-produced hell? Peppered with mouth-watering recipes and recommendations, Tom's pilgrimage maps out England's defining dishes: Fish & Chips in the North, Balti in the midlands, and Snail Porridge at the Fat Duck. But it is the colourful characters we meet along the way who truly bring Full English to life." --Back cover.
