Why British Food Was So Bad For So Long
I'd always wondered why British food was so bad. The country clearly had centuries of kings, castles, and fests. No one really knew how to cook?
Like tonnes of other folks, I've taken up watching Downton Abbey. The dining scenes are so elaborate and the food looks yummy. The cook, Mrs Patmore, has on occasion refused a dinner item request from a quest. Her reason - the dish requested would be too completed to prepare. So...why is British nosh so famously bad?
Ahh......This article from the NPR food blog The Salt, Dining After 'Downton Abbey': Why British Food Was So Bad For So Long, answers that question.
