Pie Fidelity at Berkofest Book Festival

May 12 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

£5

I’m delighted that I’ll be heading to Berkhamstead’s inaugural literary festival to be interviewed about Pie Fidelity by BBC Radio 2’s Nigel Barden!

The Blurb:

In Britain, we have always had an awkward relationship with food. We’ve been told for so long that we are terrible cooks and yet when someone with a clipboard asks us what the best things are about being British, our traditional food and drink are more important than the monarchy and at least as significant as our landscape and national monuments in defining a collective notion of who we are.

Taking nine archetypically British dishes – Pie and Peas, A Cheese Sandwich, Fish and Chips, Spag Bol, Devonshire Cream Tea, Curry, The Full English, The Sunday Roast and a Crumble with Custard – and enjoying them in their most typical settings, Pete Brown examines just how fundamental food is to our sense of identity, perhaps even our sense of pride, and the ways in which we understand our place in the world.
