Our problems with food in Britain go so much deeper than the pronouncements of celebrity chefs that I wonder if our diet needs its own #MeToo movement. On the one hand, we’re a nation of plenty; on the other, we have such a reliance on school meals that food banks are having to fill the gap during the summer holidays.
But this is not just about poverty. Food has also come to be about identity, class, race and gender in a way that it is not in other countries.
OK, divided by food along those varied lines.
Access to good food is regarded as a class issue in Britain, but our cultural attachment to junk food transcends the class divide too.
But we’re not divided along those lines either. Sigh.
Look there’s a reason why the traditional British urban diet was so shite. We were the first to industrialise, to urbanise, before all those methods of having not shite urban food for millions were developed. It’s really just that simple.
