Watch: Hammond Q&A

What does Hammond eat whilst filming road trips?

37w ago



It turns out Hammond is a bit of a foodie, enjoying a good Sunday roast and having very high standards when it comes to scrambled eggs. He also revealed his perfect road trip food to us, his must-have munchies for when filming The Grand Tour. He managed to eat a chocolate bar while riding a motorcycle too โ€“ weโ€™re not sure how.

  • Marmite in a glass or plastic jar, with a printed label glue on to it, and a plastic lid, is an astonishing technological achievement, and , when served on toast, with cheese and a poached egg, and beans, is a very civilised approach to breakfast, and is the culmination of the thousands of years of development of the most civilised race to ever walk the face of this earth.

    Civilisation is important, and vegetarianism as an individual voluntary choice does sound somewhat civilised.

    However it's entirely up to the individual to make an informed decision.

    Further more, there is this pearl of wisdom from Adam Smith, author of " An Enquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations ", 1776.

    After reading this introduction to Adam Smiths great work, I decided tea and toast purchased at the supermarket suited me.

    But that's just me.

    THE annual labour of every nation is the fund which originally supplies

    it with all the necessaries and conveniences of life which it annually consumes, and which consist always either in the immediate produce of that

    labour, or in what is purchased with that produce from other nations.4 [ 2 ] According therefore, as this produce, or what is purchased with it, bears a greater or smaller proportion to the number of those who are to consume

    it, the nation will be better or worse supplied with all the necessaries and

    conveniences for which it has occasion.

    5 [ 3 ] But this proportion must in every nation be regulated by two different

    circumstances; first, by the skill, dexterity, and judgment with which its labour is generally applied; and, secondly, by the proportion between the number of those who are employed in useful labour, and that of those who are not so employed.

    Whatever be the soil, climate, or extent of territory

    of any particular nation, the abundance or scantiness of its annual supply

    must, in that particular situation, depend upon those two circumstances.6 [ 4 ] The abundance or scantiness of this supply, too, seems to depend more

    upon the former of those two circumstances than upon the latter. Among

    the savage nations of hunters and fishers, every individual who is able to

    work, is more or less employed in useful labour, and endeavours to provide,

    as well as he can, the necessaries and conveniences of life, for himself, or such of his family or tribe as are either too old, or too young, or too

    infirm to go a hunting and fishing.

    Such nations, however, are so miserably poor that, from mere want, they are frequently reduced, or, at least, think themselves reduced, to the necessity sometimes of directly destroying, and sometimes of abandoning their infants, their old people, and those afflicted with lingering diseases, to perish with hunger, or to be devoured by wild beasts.

    Among civilised and thriving nations, on the contrary, though a great number of people do not labour at all, many of whom consume the produce of ten times, frequently of a hundred times more labour than the greater part of those who work; yet the produce of the whole labour of the society is so great that all are often abundantly supplied, and a workman, even of the lowest and poorest order, if he is frugal and industrious, may enjoy a greater share of the necessaries and conveniences of life than it is possible for any savage to acquire.
