For the rest of Europe, English cuisine has always been laughing stock number one. But besides being rather unhealthy, and to be honest, dodgy at times, its image is also in immediate need of a thorough makeover (preferably led by a copywriter). Allow me to elaborate: picture yourself at a grocery store, with your canned/frozen dinner safely in your basket – except for that special treat you know you won’t look for at the fruit shelf. Instead of all the mouth-watering triple chocolate biscuits and buckets of Ben & Jerry’s just waiting to be rushed home, your eyes fall on a can labelled: ”Spotted Dick Sponge Pudding.” Now that’s what I call a turn-off. Come to think of it, I should probably tip off the local Weight Watchers on that.
