    Pete Brown is preaching to the converted when it comes to a 'defence of British food' done properly it is superb And like Brown I've never understood why we aren't prouder of the dishes we do so well the food that visitors to Britain seek out and enjoy such as fish and chips and roast beef with Yorkshire puddingI liked the book's format of 9 extended 'essays' on a different typical British food such as crumble and custard or the Full English Each essay contains a history of that particular dish mixed up with some personal memories of Brown cooking andor eating it and then trying the food again in archetypical surroundingsHowever Brown is a master of the sweeping statement plus there's a fair amount of repetition We constantly hear about his move from working class Yorkshire to middle class London something he obviously feels he has to keep justifying The huge chip on his shoulder is the one 'food' in the book I'd have liked less about

    An absolutely joyous mouthwatering read from Pete Brown A glorious celebration of dishes that I myself think of most often as gross uninteresting or rip offs And yet now I am going to have to hunt these very dishes down immediately Funny and entertaining throughout I cannot recommend this enough

    A hugely entertaining and informative read about our nation's much maligned cuisine as well as dishes from abroad that have been brought by immigration and adapted thus finding their way into the nation's heartBoth funny and at times heartwarming Pete Brown takes us through Pie and Peas Fish and Chips Spag Bol and obviously the Sunday Roast and other dishes as well It invokes memories of childhood that many of us will be able to relate to as well as to the history of each dishI loved it

    A great book which explores a lot about identity and changing society as well as food and drink It managed to make me feel nostalgic for my homeland which is something I haven't felt for uite some time It also made me want to cook a whole bunch of things Definitely recommended

    I’m a big fan of Pete Brown’s beer writing and his first foray into food writing doesn’t disappoint Pie Fidelity sings the praises of British Food an unfairly maligned cuisine and makes a brilliant case that historically we have not done enough to protect our national dishes and food heritage in the way say the French have Pete tells wonderful stories throughout the book and describes the link between family and food wonderfully You’ll never think about a bacon roll in the same way

    Con tutta la leggerezza e sapienza che sa usare Pete Brown un bel libro non scontato e non banale sulla cucina della Gran Bretagna Sì alla fine ma anche durante si avrà voglia di pie e roastbeef Un bella scusa per ripensare alla nostra memoria proustiana

    For a book with in defence of in the title there's an awful lot of bad food described in it but this is an enjoyable and personal tour of British food classics
