It explores how British food and identity developed over time and by class. It then analyzes how a baking competition show came to define a British identity linked to baking. The thesis links the conceptualizations of British modernity to the evolution of media technology from mass-market cookbooks and newspaper recipes, to cooking shows broadcast over the radio and television and finally to the newest developments in digital/streaming media. Examining media evolution the global impact of British food and identity in the twenty-first century.
