Mutton once took pride of place on every dining table up and down the country. It was the nation’s favourite dish. It fed us all, from peasant to King. 

Whatever happened to it?

Bob Kennard explains the decline of this nutritious and lucrative commodity which once made men rich and kept them healthy.

But more importantly, he explains why mutton is now poised to make a come-back.

Its extraordinary health and environmental benefits are at last being recognised.
