When Paul Arnott was a small boy his mother gave him sugar and melted butter for a sore throat and all hot meals were followed by sponge and custard. His first love was the magnificent green tin of Tate & Lyle's faux honey from Warrington: Golden Syrup. A passionate affair with sweet stuff had begun. Paul's love of sugar has taken him far and wide. From a cake factory in Bangalore where, on the basis of his round face he was offered a role in a Bollywood film, to Pennyslvania to investigate the town of Hershey, built by the chocolate magnate for his workers. He pays homage to the work of the Papa Bubble at the Caramel Artisans factory shop in Barcelona and the master baker of the Greek island of Spetses. Into the mix he adds something of the history, economy and industry of sugar. As Paul's love of sweet stuff grew, so did his waist. He contends that, contrary to what many would have us believe, eating cake isn't a sin. It's an indulgence. And the experiences that caused every extra pound should be revered and celebrated. LET ME EAT CAKE is a memoir of love for sweet sensations, Larousse Gastronomique written by Billy Bunter. Funny, charming and full of surprising stories it will leave you feeling deliciously full.
