Reader, I Marinated Him - the language of food
Michael Rosen on stage at the Food Connections Festival in Bristol with historians and writers, Sue Shepherd, Annie Gray and Kathryn Hughes, discuss hungry minds and literary meals through history. James Bond's dinners, Miss Haversham's wedding cake, Paddington Bear's sandwiches - literature groans with plenty. In the Soviet Gulag prisoners discovered they shared a dream of rye bread flying past them like a meteor or an angel. History is full of hunger. Language has brought all these meals into life. Michael's three guests bring their favourites. Producer: Tim Dee.
