    sure, sure. But this is quantitative, not qualitative. 18 millions out of the results for English food are making jokes about it. But good luck on your quest to change the perception about English food, and may you find the world best PR firm, that's what it might take.

    Shhh, McAuliflower, don't tell Ced about the inverted commas. They change everything.

    I've always been a fan of British food. In fact, I've always thought it to be high quality (it was probably due to all the Enid Blyton books I read as a child). So, I would find it bemusing that people would make fun of it all the time. Of course, now I understand that the 70s and 80s were a bad time for cuisine, but the same can be said for Australian cuisine, and American, to a certain extent. I believe, after the flirtation with convenience/processed food that was hailed as the way of the future it wasn't until the late 80s that focus was shifted back to the quality of produce and the use of fresh ingredients in many (mostly English speaking) countries. So, so make fun of British food is to ignore that fact that your own cuisine was suffering at the same time. At least, that's what I believe!

    bravo!
    I can't tell you how excited we all were when we discovered garlic, and shortly thereafter "garlic bread" in the early 80s.
