Notes about this book

  • Curlyfatkins on May 24, 2018

    Eat Up by Ruby Tandoh is not really a cook book, though there is a few recipes contained within. They are not laid out like usual recipes but contained within the text of a chapter. This book is more a look of what food means to her life, be it picking blackberries when visiting her grandmother to feeling under the weather and ordering a curry takeaway to make them feel better or what films have food appear in them. I was rather disappointed that the main content took up only 64% of the book, with the remaining pages dedicated to the bibliography and index. I was provided with a copy from netgalley in return for a honest review.

Publishers Text

Think about that first tickle of hunger in your stomach. A moment ago, you could have been thinking about anything, but now it's thickly buttered marmite toast, a frosty scoop of ice cream straight from the tub, some creamy, cheesy scrambled eggs or a fuzzy, perfectly-ripe peach. Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures. Food nourishes our bodies, helps us celebrate our successes (from a wedding cake to a post-night out kebab), cheers us up when we're down, introduces us to new cultures and - when we cook and eat together - connects us with the people we love. In Eat Up, Ruby Tandoh celebrates the fun and pleasure of food, taking a look at everything from gluttons and gourmets in the movies, to the symbolism of food and sex. She will arm you against the fad diets, food crazes and bad science that can make eating guilt-laden and expensive, drawing eating inspiration from influences as diverse as Roald Dahl, Nora Ephron and Gemma from TOWIE. Filled with straight-talking, sympathetic advice on everything from mental health to recipe ideas and shopping tips, this is a book that clears away the fog, to help you fall back in love with food.
