Bursting with original research, Annie Gray's first book considers Britain's most iconic monarch from a new perspective, telling the story of British food along the way. 

What does it mean to eat like a Queen? Elizabeth gorged on sugar; Mary on chocolate, and Ann was known as Brandy Nan. Victoria ate all of this and more. Annie Gray's first book gives a new perspective on one of Britain's most iconic monarchs, celebrating her appetite, both for food and, indeed, for life. 

Voracious and adventurous in her tastes, Queen Victoria was head of state during a revolution in how we ate - from the highest tables to the most humble. Bursting with original research, A Greedy Queen considers Britain's most iconic monarch from a new perspective, telling the story of British food along the way. 

Annie Gray is an historian, cook, broadcaster and writer specialising in the history of food and dining in Britain from around 1600 to the present day, conducting her research both in libraries and in kitchens. She has worked at Audley End amongst other historical kitchens, and gives lectures all over the country. She’s the resident food historian on BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet and presents BBC Two’s Victorian Bakers. She lives in East Anglia. 

Morley Arts Festival is delighted to welcome the return of Dr Annie Gray to hear her talk passionately about her first book, The Greedy Queen.
