Subtitle A Story of Food and Love: The Times Food Book of the Year
The Times Food Book of the Year. A soul-searching memoir for foodies everywhere. Let award-winning food writer Clare Finney take you on a passionate exploration of food and love.
From family feasts to comfort food, first dates to office cake; how does what we eat define us, and the relationships we have with others?
Finney investigates the role that food plays in modern society, exploring how eating unites us in varied ways throughout our lives. She discusses her own childhood spent in her grandmother’s hotel kitchen. She talks about the meals and recipes that have shaped the person she is today.
Think of the dance of culinary courtship entailed in dating. Or the funeral foods that remind us of the connections between life and death, Finney examines the power of food and drink to attract, bind and define us—and of course, its power to divide and repel.

Fourteen easy-to-follow meaningful recipes
A relatable exploration of what food means in life, love and beyond
No-holds-barred look into the world of gastronomy and food writing
