The extraordinary memoir from Britain’s best-loved food writer.
‘I would arrive in London, do a lovely photoshoot in a lovely dress, having had my make-up and hair done, but soon enough I would be back on a train to Carlisle. Back on the side of a hill in GORE-TEX leggings and an old jumper, covered in egg, letting my moustache grow while dealing with caring for someone with dementia. Rather than an uninterrupted joyous romp through the restaurants of Britain, my career has been a mad dash of trying to fit restaurants into my life.’
Grace Dent has always been hungry. Growing up in the arse-end of Cumbria, she dreamed of becoming the next Paula Yates. From sharing gammon and grilled pineapple rings with her dad to tasting The Ritz’s truffle-adorned ouefs cocotte, Hungry is a story about navigating two worlds.
Nostalgic and funny, this incredible memoir is a tribute to the power of family and food.
