    Try to blooter the myth that British food is necessarily awful.

    It is also a wonderful source for fatty starchy comfort foods just the thing for when a girl is feeling down as even the most lightsome of us do from time to time

    Egads man - when you click on the page for "Recipes" - there is still an entire section devoted to "Offal"!!

    You blokes need to work on that one......

    That said - I think British food is loverly. I had wonderful food (and company) during my entire visit. Even the donner kebob was great.

    And truthfully - if you link to some of the recipes up at the Carnival, there are some pretty awful American ones redolent in fat, carbs and other unpleasant ingredients lurking in there.

    Campbell: I think you'll find it's mostly Scottish cuisine that's unfortunate...


    Linda: Doner kebabs ain't British, any more than tortillas are American... I will, however, give you the rubberstamp on the fact that Colonial food makes a trip to the UK that much nicer (as if it needed to be; British beer kicks the ass of all other beer... who needs food?)

    It's awfully soon to refer to you a 12-step "Bloggers Anonymous" group...:-)

    Linda: This US prejudice against offal needs working on. Next time you come I am taking you to St John's Restaurant - where they specialise is 'variety meats' The marrow-bone jelly on taost is to die for and was a tea-time favourite of Queen Victoria

    jwer - you are just silly and I don't know why we put up with you!

    Campbell: marrow-bone jelly doesn't count, that's just runny Jell-O... haggis is what I'm talking about, and you know it... not to repeat myself, but why else would throwing it as hard as one can be such a highlight of the Highland Games?

    Also, you put up with me because I'm adorable, ask anyone!

    Durr! Ever eaten a haggis? They are delicious. haggis throwing is pert of no Highland Games I've ever heard of.
    No you're not. we are, on the other hand, becuase we put up with you :-)

    Campbell - you might want to google the term Haggis Hurling, and see what happens.....

    I'm just sayin...

    Are you sure you're Scottish? Next you'll be telling me you've never heard of throwing telephone poles...


    Also, while I've not had actual haggis (as it is illegal to import to the US, which should tell you something about its contents) I did have export haggis, which tasted like corned beef hash.

    And also, um, no.
