British food doesn't get much respect on the world stage. Our hale and hearty cuisine is long out of fashion, and has been the subject of much sneering ridicule. Yet it's a diet characterised by robust flavour and joyful indulgence, and it deserves to be celebrated.

Eat Britain! is a lavishly illustrated, no-nonsense league table of the best of British foods, all drawn from the author's live journal livejournal.com/use…nw/. From haggis to hotpot and teacakes to toad-in-the-hole, each entry is discussed and reviewed and accompanied by a mouth-watering photo. The list is divided into ten categories; breakfast, main meals, snacks and treats, puddings, sauces and seasonings, dairy, beverages, fruit and veg, meat and fish and teatime. There's one item in the list that transcends all categories, but you'll have to read it to find out what it is.

This is a personal and idiosyncratic list: there is no place for such specialities as black pudding, oysters or steak and kidney pie. However, the choice will inspire debate and rumbling stomachs. With useful tried and tested recipes, and handy serving suggestions, this book is way too good to miss. Grub's up. Pass up your plates.

so this doesnt even have any recipes? Whats the point in it then?

From the Times:
Eat Britain! is equally 101 great jokes about how pained the British often are when their noses are rubbed between the opposing forces of sensuality and one-upman-ship; do we enjoy the postmodern irony of the inglorious Scotch egg, or acknowledge that it was (who knew?) invented by Fortnum & Mason? Is it now permissible in all environments to dunk? The recipe collection at the back is a bit of an afterthought: it's too small to read except in desperation, but maybe you will be desperate for sticky toffee pudding having read all about it in Wheeler's succulent prose.

I love some good British food - especially for comfort eating!!! This is making me hungry though! Hot deal!
