And yet, not only does America virtually run the world market, but there is Jamie Oliver. :roll:


Scary, isn't it. (Disclosure: I have no idea of who Jamie Oliver is).


Keep it that way Raisindot!

He is an Essex boy who thinks he can tell you what to eat! He dropped himself in it over here and now is trying the States! Gods help you, that's all I can say!


You lack perspective, Meerkat. What about the foul-mouthed Scot with the bad attitude and a name that sounds like a psuedonym made up from two British PMs? And who, incidentally, badmouthed one of our most beloved TV presenters for no good reason?

My mother was a very good cook, and a trained confectioner. My dad could boil an egg and make toast and fry a rasher. I inherited my dad's skills :roll:
Over the years I learned to feed my family adequately, and I make a lovely beef stew, but I never learned to like cooking. Fortunately my daughter picked up a liking for it, heaven knows where. My son makes a great bowl of cereal and knows how to use a microwave.

Pip, coddle is gorgeous! If you don't mind to look of grey sausage :lol: Tastes wonderful though. Also colcannon.

Some of the yummiest food I ever had was when I was in Munich, they really know meat.
In the beginning there was nothing, and then it exploded.

And those big ham knuckle things, and nuss nougat pancakes from street vendors mmmmm. It's odd, I've been around Europe, and Southern Germany was like coming home. I loved it there, the food, the people, the countryside.

So many red roofs all over the place :lol: And they have Neuschwansten, totally mad castle that.
My son discovered currywurst, to his delight. - don't know why we never thought of it at home, so simple. Of course, the sausage is superior there.
