Are you British enough for post-Brexit Britain?

Are you British enough for post-Brexit Britain?

Want to find out how British you really are?

From the author of Games on Thrones, this unique quiz book probes, exposes and celebrates the true essence of Britishness in all its guises, from chasing cheese downhill and self-deprecation, to naming cakes after Northern towns and always remaining alert for a fruity innuendo.

From our stiff upper lips and blithe willingness to form an orderly queue, to our quirky traditions, drunken antics and borderline psychotic leisure pursuits, Brits are renowned throughout the world for being so... darned... British.

We're a mass of contradictions, as changeable as the weather in the Scottish highlands, as cosy as a Cornish cream tea, as bright and colourful as a chicken tikka masala, or as morose as a lump of Welsh slate.

Our kitchen cupboards are full of tins - tomatoes, chickpeas, tuna, kidney beans, sardines, sweetcorn, even figs - that often are used as an addition to a recipe but never the main ingredient. Take One Tin is a celebration of tinned ingredients, offering 80 recipes that take one tin and make it the focus of the meal. Arranged to showcase the range of tins available, the chapters begin with the staple that is Beans and Pulses, followed by Tomatoes and Vegetables, which play a central role in countless dishes, then Fish, and finally Fruit and Sweet Tins. The last chapter offers a few tasty accompaniments to eat alongside your meal.Lola's creative but simple recipes, such as jackfruit & red kidney bean chilli, sweetcorn fritters, Sri Lankan mackerel curry and pineapple, coconut & lime upside down cake make the absolute most of ingredients you will already have, topped up with some fresh ingredients. Substitutions are also suggested should you not have every ingredient to hand.Save money, be creative and waste less food by looking in your cupboard instead of visiting the supermarket.

For every gatherer, there must be a hunter, for every dreamer, a do-er. The next time there is a full moon, open the window and let it in: it is time to embrace your inner wolf. A spoof-inspirational book that casts a darkly humorous light on the wilder side of animal lore.
