Using Your Loaf

When do you think the resurgence in British food began, and what might have motivated it?
I’m no expert but I think it’s been gathering pace for years. People are tired of supermarkets’ dominance of the food arena. The resurgence of ‘grow your own’ and farmers markets and local veg box schemes show more and more people are keen to know about the provenance of their food and support local producers where possible.
