Hungry traces Grace’s story growing up in Currock, Carlisle, to becoming the most recognisable and unique voice on the British food scene today. It’s also everyone’s story – treats with your nan; cheese and pineapple hedgehogs as the centrepiece of birthday buffets; the exquisite joy of dinner on a tray. It’s the high point of chips and gravy in the school canteen on an otherwise grey day. It’s the real story of how the British working classes have really lived, loved, eaten, and had fun over the past 40 years.

Warm, funny and joyous, Hungry is also about love and loss, and the central role that food plays in all our lives. How a Cadbury’s Fruit ‘n’ Nut in a hospital vending machine can brighten the toughest situation.
