Cornucopia: A Gastronomic Tour of Britain by Paul Richardson
In the course of a journey around the eating places, the fine food producers, and the markets and supermarkets of Britain, Paul Richardson chatted with chefs and shoppers, foodie faddists, and junk food junkies. He visited cheesemakers, bakers, smokehouses, coffee houses, and artisan producers of everything from ham and jam to cakes and ale. Democratic to the end, he tasted his way through deep-fried Mars bars in Newcastle and udder in Accrington, peppering his narrative with fascinating culinary lore.
