    Yes but British food is very high in fat, in cannot be denied. It's rich and calorie laced! The majority of the foods NDGARRONDI listed above are really high in fat!
    Lol, you haven't had enough foie gras, French sausages, paté, rillettes or saucisson mate! Now that's what I call high in fat!

    But they taste so goooooood!

    Anyway, English strawberries are the best in the world, and they're very healthy.

    Yes - on their own after being rinsed in water, not drowned in double cream - the British favourite!

    I hate French sausages: absolutely full of fat. You get big chunks of fat in them. Disgusting. Although British sausages don't contain much meat apparently but as long as they taste good...

    You don't have to have them with cream. I don't.

    Nothing exceptional but no worse than Polish, German, Spanish, Scandinavian food, if not better in certain respects...
    Precisely! And people may think of Chinese and Italian cuisine on the basis of a few select dishes and base their whole opinion on that.

    Scotland is part of BRITAIN
    Therefore Haggis constitutes a BRITISH food!

    Goodness. Just reading that list made me sick to my stomach.

    Sorry, guys, but of course everyone loves the food they've grown up on.

    My experience with British food is that it is bland and often overcooked and soggy, meat especially. It's edible (well, most of it), as far as I'm concerned, but unpleasant.

    to be fair, you can't really blame us for the quality of fast food
