Hungry

£9.99

From an early age, Grace Dent was hungry.

As a little girl growing up in Currock, Carlisle, she yearned to be something bigger, to go somewhere better. Hungry traces her story from growing up eating beige food to becoming one of Britain’s best-loved food writers. It’s also everyone’s story – from cheese and pineapple hedgehogs and treats with your nan, to the exquisite joy of a chip butty covered in vinegar and too much salt in the school canteen on a grey day.

And the Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut from a hospital vending machine that tells a loved one you really care. Grace’s snapshot of how we have lived, laughed and eaten over the past 40 years reveals the central role food plays in either bringing us together or driving us apart – from toasting a large glass of warm Merlot to grimly polishing off a wilted salad. Heartfelt, witty and joyous, Hungry shows us what we’ve always known to be true.

Food, friends and family are the indispensable ingredients of a life well lived.
