Pen Vogler's Scoff has entered the Sunday Times paperback non-fiction chart at number 5.

In the fascinating social history of food in Britain, Pen Vogler examines the origins of our eating habits and reveals how they are loaded with centuries of class prejudice. Covering such topics as fish and chips, roast beef, avocados, tripe, fish knives and the surprising origins of breakfast, Scoff reveals how in Britain we have become experts at using eating habits to make judgements about social background.

The book was a Daily Mail, Independent, The Times and The Sunday Times Book of the Year when it came out in hardback and was described as 'a brilliant romp of a book' by Jay Raynor.

Congratulations to Pen!
