With his infectious humour and brilliant writing style, Jesse Dunford Wood presents a delightfully wacky, delicious and irresistible collection of British classics with a twist and a turn, based around the premise that food should be fun and that flavour is key. Cow Pie sits alongside retro favourites such as Chicken Kyiv and a wealth of wittily conceived, much-loved British dishes, beautifully realised through imaginative photography.

Modern British Food is intended to be the ultimate fun cookery book, great to give and great to receive; a cookery book to make you smile and to make you hungry.
