Pen Vogler – Stuffed – A History of Food and Responsibility

Pen Vogler has written a fascinating history of the people, the ideas and the dishes that have fed – and starved – a nation. Whose responsibility is it to make sure there is something to eat on every table and of what quality? With the ever increasing cost of food, who ensures that children get milk and cereal, eggs and toast to keep hunger at bay, that key workers – whether NHS nurses or soldiers fighting abroad – have the nourishment they need to work at the coal face? Changing customs and laws around food reveal how to feed the nation and the love hate relationship with meat, fish, vegetables and cheese.
