Surprising, passionate and often quite angry. Excellent food writing - although as a collection of decades of articles there are moments of inconsistency, repetition and stuff that simply isn't quite as good. A nice easy rad though...

Love this guy's writing about food, very funny and I share many of his opinions about real food vs. processed. I did see his cafe and store in Wiltshire, so I had a great connection and could picture the farm he lives on.

An entertaining romp through Hugh's earlier writings, edited by the greatly self satisfied man himself. Engaging enough that I read the entire thing in a couple of sittings. Afterwards, life continued much as it did before.

Perfect for a bit of Hugh-doting, this collection of his food writings is great for both reference, and inspiration.

A compilation of magazine and newspaper articles from before his fame. Even then banging a drum about rubbish being sold as food.

Cant argue with the sentiments but all the articles are pretty old and therefore old hat and his writing skills are less well developed here too
