Essential. Sensual. Playful. Addictive. The experience of food can be many things to many people. Whether it’s carrying a chilli around to dinner parties in the UK or finding out what it really means to be a vegetarian in a carnivorous world, whether it is exploring the junk food revolution in India or discovering the art of slow cooking, this full-bodied collection of food writing will take you back to the kitchens of your childhood, and far out to realms of imagined flavours and sensory excitement.

A joyous mix of the familiar and the unfamiliar, the home-grown and the street-born, this book is a celebration of that most vital ingredient of life: food.
