It used to take my grandparents all day from about 7 am to make a sunday roast for the family at 3:00. Delicious it was.

I can heartily recommend the carving course at Simpsons in the Strand. You spend all morning carving (and picking at) joints they cook from early doors and then carve for your family when they come for Sunday lunch in the restaurant.

That was a big protein (and red wine) day ...

The rise in popularity of the Yorkshire Burrito is a sign that people still embrace British food. For the record, they're delicious.

Isn't there some 80:20 urban myth statistic along the lines of women doing 80% of supermarket shopping, but 80% of pork pies are bought by men?

Ooh I like this subject as a proper Euro wanker who has spent more time living on the mainland than in the UK I actually think traditional English food (like my Mum cooked), is very underrated and even more so cakes and especially puddings! I don't know any other country even close when it comes to pudding, France maybe.

Also English cheese, massively under valued.

Point of order: the UK is the mainland.

Good point on cheese, we have Stilton, Red Leicester, Wensleydale and a shyte load of others.
They send us Brie, what is that tasteless sceptic ooze.

There really isn't anything to touch a Sunday roast done properly with great British ingredients.

Eight hours to make a Sunday roast?

I can only assume that their meat was still running around when they started.

I think we do tend to undervalue our own cuisine in this country. Maybe because we tend to value quantity and convenience over quality. And perhaps lack the national confidence to think that our own cuisine, done properly, is good enough.

What do foreign visitors to Britain think of our food, I wonder? Do French guide books tell them to have a cream tea? Are Japanese tourists recommended to try a Cornish pasty?

The French have always had a grudging respect for some of our traditional desserts and I have Spanish friends who really rate British dairy products. Italians tend to be very insular when it comes to food but those I know in London rate English Lamb. But we do seem to lack an internationally popular/respected signature dish.

As part of the British empire, don’t we encapsulate all of those cuisines into the term “British”.

A minimum of six hours is required just to boil the cabbage surely.
