News Flash - English Food the Best in the World!
I have to interrupt India Curry & Spice Week for a second for a serious announcement. Amy emailed me yesterday to let me know that Heston Blumenthal's English Fat Duck restaurant was voted the best in the world, knocking The French Laundry off its perch. Read the full story here.
You may have noticed my little one-person blogging crusade to try and let the world know that English food isn't all bad. Now I have been vindicated. (Even if the awards were hosted by a British magazine, pah, so what, no one complained when Thomas Keller won). I visited England recently and did some pretty good dining out. I bought back some English fare to share with quite a few of my San Francisco blogging friends. Check out one new blogger who really embraced their gift, Alice. She created a fabulous feast using the Jules & Sharpie hot apple and sage jelly I gave her. Wow!
Fred sometimes remarks to me that he doesn't like the comments people leave on blogs. He finds them too sweet, too insipid, too adoring. I have to disagree with him, of course. But maybe, today, as I gloat, just a little, over the new world restaurant order, I will attract some more abusive responses that will be to his liking. Bring it on...
