The necessity, and pleasure, of food gives it a central position in our ways of life. Our food is closely related to our environment, physical and social. Once we ate only what we could hunt, gather or grow locally; today although we can import food from all over the world, there is a resurgence in eating locally produced food in Surrey. Discover the ‘Flavours of Surrey’: find out the history of Surrey’s food, what people ate, and why.
