In our final episode of the season, 'Food, Glorious food,' explores how Dickens used food in his fiction. Why was food so important to him? What do his descriptions tell us about Dickens as a person? And did he really help to make turkey the most popular Christmas meat?
This is a recipe book, written by Charles Dickens's wife, Catherine, under the pen-name 'Lady Maria Clutterbuck.' This book gives us a wonderful insight into how the Dickens family ate, as discussed by Pen Vogler in Episode Six.
