The Last Food of England

It's not new, but this book is top of my Christmas list. It's Marwood Yeatman's culinary history of England (with photographs by his wife, Anya); an elegy to the craftsmanship and charm of the food we grow and rear: the Wessex sadleback, the Dorking, Lancashire oatcakes, West Country cider, clotted cream... Personally, I want to discover where I can pick myself some whortleberries.


  1. Book's not my bag but I'd happily adopt those sheep. They'd love it in Shepherd's Bush.

  2. I love that you are comprising a christmas wish list already ;) Looks like a great read!
