From frazzles to foie gras: a memoir of wanting more from an early age, Grace Dent was hungry. As a little girl watching Paula Yates and Jilly Goolden on TV she yearned to be something bigger, to go somewhere better. “Hungry” traces Grace’s story growing up in Currock, Carlisle, to becoming the most recognisable and unique voice on the British food scene today.
It’s also everyone’s story – treats with your nan. It’s the high point of chips and gravy in the school canteen on an otherwise grey day. It’s the real story of how the British working classes have really lived, loved, eaten, and had fun over the past 40 years.
