The British at Table, 1940-1980
Christopher Driver, editor of "The good food guide" from 1969 to 1982, brings a fund of knowledge and a caustic wit to this account of the British as shoppers, cultivators, cooks and consumers. In the forty years covered by this book there have been more drastic changes in our diet than in any similar period since the Norman Conquest - changes brought about by, among other things, the disappearance of domestic servants, foreign restauranteurs, and the industrialisation of food production.
