This review is from: The Mish-MASH Dictionary of Marmite (Paperback)
By Garry Clifford
The sun may have dimmed a bit on the once mighty British Empire, but its legacy lives on in weird and wonderful ways. One of the most widespread is the iconic breakfast spread of gooey black concentrated yeast extract known as "Marmite." Regarded by the Brits as a national treasure, the brown jar with the bright yellow lid shows up in some of the most remote places on the globe.(Just this year Jesus appeared in Wales in a Marmite lid). People love it or loathe it. Maggie Hall, an intrepid reporter, who has spent the last 40 years covering both sides of the pond, has written a delightfully funny book about this little wonder titled: "The Mish-Mash Dictionary of Marmite, an anecdotal A-Z of 'Tar-in a-Jar'." Filled with wonderful historical stories and bizarre lore, it is a great read for nearly everyone and not for Brits alone. But if you're a Brit--Buy Two!

Another well-deserved five stars! This stellar review is very much in the spirit of "The Mish-Mash Dictionary of Marmite." It will inspire readers, no doubt. But how about your vote, Garry? So far we have: Marmite, 1; chopped liver, 1; and peanut butter & jelly, 1. What say you? Best from Bar.
