In this indulgent Christmas Special with the author Pen Vogler, we forego the tradition of our usual format and opt to roam freely across the centuries.
Instead of looking at one year in isolation, we examine one single day. That, of course, is the brightest, bonniest, most edacious date in all the Christian calendar: 25 December.
Pen Vogler is the author of the expertly researched, Scoff, A History of Food and Class in Britain, A multiple book of the year, Scoff has been described by Jay Rayner as 'A brilliant romp of a book that gets to the very heart of who we think we are, one delicious dish at a time.'
