Avocado or beans on toast? Nut roast or game pie? And do you have tea, dinner or supper in the evening? As a nation, we have become experts at using eating habits to make judgements about a person’s social background. Food historian and Sunday Times Bestselling author Pen Vogler (Scoff: A History of Food and Class in Britain) joins Julia Leonard to discuss the fascinating history of British eating habits, and the people, traditions and prejudices that have shaped them.
