Slice of Life: The British Way of Eating Since 1945

Front Cover
BBC Books, 1995 - Cookery, British - 224 pages
Providing an account of post-war Britain, as seen through food and cookery, this book discusses how our changing attitudes to class, ethnicity, technology, feminism and the family have been mirrored in our feelings about spotted dick, chicken vindaloo and cappuccino, as well as our attitudes to, for instance, table manners and kitchen design. From the serving hatch to the microwave oven, from the Ministry of Food to organic avocados, the shifts and upheavals of post-war British life are reflected in this history of what we eat, why, how and with whom.
