Garnished with pictures, anecdotes and recipes from an enormous range of sources, this is a history of cooking and eating in England and France, demonstrating that the cuisines of these two countries have been closely entwined for over a millennium. The book won the 1986 International Grand Prix for Gastronomic Literature, the first book by an Englishman to win the prize in its history.

About the Author:

Stephen Mennell is professor of sociology at University College Dublin, Ireland.

From Library Journal:

This stimulating book is a welcome addition to the new academic discipline of food history. The author does not merely describe the differences in the tastes in England and France. Instead, he takes on the more difficult task of trying to explain those national differences, and to understand ``how social groups develop standards of taste.'' His topics include ``Fasting, Gluttony, the Church and the State,'' ``Puritanism and Food,'' ``Male Chefs and Women Cooks,'' ``Women's Magazines,'' and a really masterly discussion of early English cookbooks and manuscripts. This book is well written, scholarly, and provocative; no reader interested in food history could ask for more. Joyce S. Toomre, Russian Research Ctr., Harvard Univ.
