Hometown hero returns with glorious memoir
In her acclaimed memoir, Hungry, restaurant critic, television star and Carlisle native Grace Dent traces her story from growing up eating beige food to becoming one of Britain’s best-loved food writers. Everyone can relate — from cheese and pineapple hedgehogs and treats with your Nan, to the Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut from a hospital vending machine that tell a loved one you really care. Tracing the story of how we’ve lived, laughed, and eaten, she reveals the central role food plays in all our most important relationships.
Dent is a broadcaster, author and columnist. She is restaurant critic for the Guardian, and a regular on MasterChef. She presents the multi-award-winning show The Untold on BBC Radio 4, and a popular new podcast, Comfort Eating, for the Guardian.
“Extraordinary. Vivid, irreverent, heartbreaking.” Nigel Slater
