"Food Mania" is a celebration of culinary matters with images documenting all its delights, from growing food to its presentation at the table. It shows kitchen gardens, tea plantations, markets, bakers and brewers; the still-life of the larder, with every kind of foodstuff and ingredient, and the frenzy of the kitchen, complete with utensils. There are scenes of 18th-century banqueting excess, and Art Deco illustrations of "polite" society, the details of crockery, cutlery and menu cards.
