If ever there was a book to remind the English that their local food choices go far beyond the chippy, this would be it. "Eating England: Why We Eat What We Eat with Over 500 Special Places to Eat and Shop" is a journey through the culinary gems that make up the English countryside and a great guide to local producers.
You get a sense of the enjoyment that the author has for english produce and the people that make it. For someone like me who has the travel bug, it makes me want to go out and discover all of the little places that she describes. The book reminds me of Rick Stein's food heroes without the recipes. My only complaint would be that there aren't enough pictures of the local products. Reading about them was making me hungry... seeing a picture would have put me on the train.
