Clarissa Dickson Wrights latest culinary adventure reveals the origins and 
development of our three daily meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a 
nation, we take them for granted, assuming that they have always existed as 
they are now. But unpick each of these eating rituals, trace their lineage back 
through a thousand years of British history and you find fascinating and 
surprising stories of social upheaval and shifting class structures, of 
technological developments and gastronomic revolutions.

Clarissa Dickson Wright completes her journey through the history of our 
mealtimes with dinner - our main meal of the day and also our showiest. Dinner 
is when we like to enjoy the finest dishes and exhibit our good taste even if, 
as Fanny Cradock understood, that involves a touch of snobbery. And, as 
Clarissa discovers, some people nowadays resort to serving ready meals as if 
they were their own culinary creations!

But although dinner is our most ritualistic meal, dont imagine that its 
traditions are timeless and unchanged. In fact, its a microcosm of 1,000 years 
of evolving customs. As she journeys back into history, Clarissa reveals that 
in the Middle Ages, even the most refined diners ate with their hands - we have 
the Italians to thank for introducing us to the fork. Similarly, we have the 
humble turnip to thank for making roast beef our historic national dish, and 
the custom of eating dinner in series of separate courses only came to us via 
the Russian ambassador to Paris in the nineteenth century. But most surprising, 
perhaps, is the fact that for centuries dinner was always served in daylight 
hours. The custom of eating it in the evening only came about because of the 
increased availability of candles in Georgian times.

Sadly, we have the Victorians to blame for the poor reputation of British 
dinnertime cuisine, something that even pioneer TV cook Fanny Cradock could do 
nothing to dispel; and the rise in popularity of ready meals in our own time is 
not likely to revive it. As she reaches the end of her journey, Clarissa 
arrives at a typically outspoken conclusion about the current state of our 
mealtime traditions and what we need to learn from the customs of the past.-------------------------------------Torrent downloaded from
