A Taste of London  -  In Food and Pictures, Fitzgibbon, Theodora
6 Fitzgibbon, Theodora A Taste of London - In Food and Pictures
London J.M. Dent 1973 0460078739 / 9780460078733 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A near Fine unmarked copy ( Fine apart from a minor indentation to front) with VG+ dustjacket. A rectangular format volume of xi + 123 pages. 60 period photographs specially prepared by George Morrison. London, with its great historical tradition, has food as varied as its people, some of whom have 'emigrated' from many parts of the country and from all corners of the world to settle in the capital. Some have set up their own traditions, but Londoners, including the legendary - and still flourishing - Cockney, have absorbed most of them - and their cooking. Thus the food of London derives from many places. The author has mingled London's history with many excellent dishes, ranging from the foods made famous by chefs such as Soyer of the Reform Club to the humbler boiled beef and carrots. Each recipe is faced by a period photograph of people, places and events, some taken as long ago as the 1840's.

7 Grigg, David The World Food Problem 1950-1980
Oxford Basil Blackwell 1989 0631153373 / 9780631153375 Soft Cover Fine No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A Fine unmarked copy. 276 pages. For much of human history mankind has been undernourished, and for most of that time this was considered inevitable: there wasn't enough to go round. The agricultural and industrial revolutions in the 18th and 19th centuries gave hope that malnutritionmight vanish from Europe. But it was not until the Second World War that the Western nations began to concern themselves with the food problem and to look forward to a world free of hunger. Yet in 1980 some estimates put numbers of those still hungry as high as 1500 million. What went wrong? Professor Grigg searches for the causes among the mass of factors, political, demographic, economic and social, agricultural, climatic, giving separate attention to the major problem areas - Africa, Latin America and Asia. **** NOT EX LIB ****

Toast  -  The Story of a Boy's Hunger, Slater, Nigel

London Harper Collins AudioBooks 2003 0007177682 / 9780007177684 Hard Cover Fine Fine 24mo - over 5" - 5" tall 
5 AUDIO CD's complete and unabridged. 6 hours 2 minutes listening time. Read by the author. A Fine set. Toast is top food writer Nigel Slater's eat-and-tell autobiography. Detailing all the food, recipes and cooking that have marked his passage from greedy schoolboy to great food writer, this is also a catalogue of how the British have eaten over the last three decades. Britain's most popular cook describes his personal culinary odyssey, from dangerous encounters with his mother's weevil-seasoned cakes to being harangued by readers who think he deliberately styles Yorkshire puddings to look like a woman's private parts. Hilarious, irreverent and mouthwatering, it captures thirty years of British cooking and the recipes that we have grown up with since the days when a grilled grapefruit was the last word in dinner party chic. Everyone has gorged on cake mix, endured disastrous dinner parties, and put up with the loved one who can only ever produce burnt toast. Nigel Slater is no different. Hair-raising accounts of hotels modeled on Fawlty Towers, the mystery of the disappearing condom and the seafood cocktail, and many more, take readers behind the scenes of British cuisine to reveal the unlikely origins of our foremost cook.
