Taste is packed with information and historical references, a fairly academic work, and a great volume on food & history. British history and culture form a backdrop to detailed culinary information, and historical and social changes going back as far as the Roman occupation. Taste has a lengthy notes section, an extensive bibliography and index. I still needed the internet to look up less common terms. I usually devour books in a day, but this volume is so richly packed with lovely detail my reading slowed so that I didn't miss a thing. I'll likely read it a second time and then add it to my personal library. If you enjoy this book, Founding Foodies (on the early US presidents) is a lighter amuse-bouche historical food read.
