I know UK is not particularly known by their exquisite cusine. However, neither is Sweden nor the Netherlands. So, why is it that Brits come under fire so often for this reason? I reckon it must be their high profile in so many areas these days that forces people to find something to complain about – complaining certainly is a world sport! 🙂
One thing that has always intrigued me ever since I came to London is the fact that even Brits would almost warn me with regards to their food. Naive as it might sound, I don´t believe them. Two reasons for this:
- There are so many cookery programmes on TV showing the joys of British food. It´s not all about pies, as I have learnt;
- The older generation of British expats have mentioned to me that they are not quite happy to see what their national cuisine has been reduced to.
Having said this, I love their penchant for foreign food. There are not that many places around the world where you can have Austrian, Turkish, Indian, Lithuanian, etc. All in one place!
So what are you having for lunch today? I might have a home-made turkey and spinach wrap. Bon appétit!
