Talking of Food is a magazine website set up by a group of people who love not only food but also the diversity of its culture. It is not bound by ideology or momentary fads but has an open mind towards opposing views. Its contributors are often experts in their field and discuss wide ranging subjects such as antibiotics in the food-chain, the opposing arguments on GM food or the future of food. On a lighter note see how they make noodles in China or follow Elisabeth Luard's classic series on European Peasant Cookery.

Norman Tebbit suspects that he is probably the only Member of Parliament to have written a cookbook. Anne Dolamore of Grub Street talks to Lord Tebbit about how he came to write a book on game cookery. The grandson of a butcher, he was always interested in food, and enjoyed cooking with his wife. But it was a chance conversation in his favourite butcher's shop that led to his writing The Game Cook.

The Game Cook is published by Grub Street Publishing.

You can also listen to the author reading extracts from the book.
