80's FOOD CULTURE


Slobbing around at home on my only, truly, free night alone in weeks... I sit down to watch BBC series "The Supersizers Eat... The Eighties", a show hosted by famed food critic Giles Coren and actress/comedienne Sue Perkins, who together spend a week 'living' in the 1980's, but more importantly experiencing typical 80's food trends and re-visiting famous 80's restaurants, bars and work life. The whole show is based on the typical diets, largely based on trend, of Great Britain in the 80's.... combined with hilarity courtesy of our two hosts. Looking back on 80's culture from everything like Pot Noodles to Nouvelle Cuisine...not to forget the start of our mad obsession with 'convenience food'. It really brought back a lot of memories from way back. About lifestyles, about music, about fashion but more importantly about food. So watch it here and let me know what you think. There are 5 more shows to catch on Mondays at 9pm on BBC2... Click here to watch it online while you still can! : http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00l9ryq/The_Supersizers_Eat..._The_Eighties/
