I still shudder at the week I spent for work a horrid little hotel in some horrid little town a bit south of Manchester.

    In all fairness you can get some decent food at a few places in London if you pay through the nose but, on average, even the Swedes (the Swedes) have better food.
    In summary: I went to a small shitty town in the North of England, and was not impressed with the takeaway I had. Then I convinced myself that somebody with an English accent, raised in England, who went to catering college in England is a 'Scottish' chef. Because cookery is genetic.

    Aside from some naming conventions:
    I don't associate white and blood sausages with the word "pudding", I associate a milkbased product with a vanilla or chocolate flavour with pudding and "spotted dick" is delisious, but for a non-native English speaker it sounds more like a bad case of herpes infection than a dessert.

    I can say that the United Kingdom's cuisine can hold its ground with ease against the Belgo-French, French, German and Italian cuisine on the condition that you eat it at a families home.

    It's the British food industry (resto, tavern, etc...) that gives UK cuisine a bad name, even now I'm still wondering how someone could screw up something as simple as a ham-and-cheese sandwich?

    I dunno, I think you get what you pay for. A week or two ago I went for a, slightly pricey, lunch at the pub in the village and my roast pork was the absolute, gravy was perfect, roast potatoes had the exact balance of crunchiness and fluffiness. As good as anything I've eaten on the continet or elsewhere in the world.

    I think the problem is that the American palate has taken such a battering from years of consuming spray on cheese, burgers and hershey bars that it's actually become useless as a gustatory organ.

    Either that or your standards are horribly low from a lifetime of eating mostly British food.

    I made good gravy today as a British person.

    I fast roasted 3 eating apples in the juices of the roast pork loin, removed those to serve with the meal, then added vegetable stock, red wine, and a little flour.

    All served with the pork, rosemary roast potatoes (parboiled first for crispiness), yorkshire puddings and vegetables.

    To top it off, we left much of that cooking while we we were having a pint in a near-by pub beer garden.

    OM NOM NOM - British food, done well.

    The only complaints I've known Americans who've actually lived in the UK for any length of time to make about our food are

    a) I can't get a burger made just like it is back home

    b) I can't get proper Mexican food

    Everything else comes from people who were here for a brief visit and ate in some horrible pub-chain or takeaway, which is a bit like me eating at some $1 buffet or Whitecastle burger place and then going around telling people 'that's all Americans eat'.

    Why in god's name would you be searching for Mexican food in the United Kingdom?

    Also, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that bacon wrapped monstrosity above unless your religion prohibits the consumption of pork.

    Of course, that's more of your problem than the bacon's problem.
