One essay was written about The New Year’s Coming of Age told as though each of the special days/holidays was a character, ” …The last of Lent was spunging upon Shrovetide’s pancakes…” The humor was well done and the references to the nature of the days was still applicable today.

An interesting book though unlike the others in the series this is more reflections of the author and not ALL of them as I have stated are "foodie" orientated.

There are even chapters on chimney sweeps, London fog AND the confessions of a drunkard so all in all NOT wholly what it states on the book cover.

Though there was a dissertation on the history of the pig and and how people came to develop the art of roasting meat.

All in all an interesting book in general so worth reading. Written during the Romantic Period, the language is quite out dated, and rather tedious.

However, having the entire 20 strong Penguin great food series to read, I didn't really want to skip this one.

These slightly witty little essays were written in the late 1700s/early 1800s and have some connection to food - some more obvious than others.

There were a few good pages in here, enough that I feel it's worth trying Lamb again. Bennet reading these essa I'm sorry that this was my first introduction to Charles Lamb, whom I have long wished to read.
