    English cuisine gets a bad rap. But heres a little factoid: Genuine English cuisine is actually quite good, and once enjoyed a high reputation. What happened? Rationing for two world wars and the rise of feminism literally destroyed the cooking ability of English women. They turned to processed food and the traditional cuisine was nearly forgotten.

      You know, I enjoy a roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, and I even like the good old-fashioned boiled dinner. English food can be good, indeed.

      But I am Scots-Irish, and I also like my haggis and black pudding, too. 🙂

    Must be why so many men are taking an interest in cooking. But, blame the mothers for not sharing the art with children. When old enough to handle a potato peeler, I was at work in the kitchen–with an occasional cookie hot from the oven, or other treat to hold my interest. All of us learned that way, including processing a steer into steaks, and a spent layer into stew with dumplings. Caning has had a surge of interest, thanks to Europeans. The price of a dozen canning lids jumped from $1.20 to over 3 bucks in a few years. Of course, the Obama Depression didn’t help. Its odd, but this berg is not into gardening, canning, or finding free food in the brush. I am. As folks say, fewer burros in the stables, more corn for the rest. 🙂 Niio!

    Yup. “Exotic” food that they don’t have to cook themselves is like heroin to a modern woman.

    Sad thing is, I used to prepare, eat, and enjoy a whole lot of “exotic” foods from Third World regions where I had lived and traveled before such foods became “trendy” among the ignorant, never-traveled yuppie/hipster fucktard demographic here in North America. Such foods are actually mostly simple, cheap, healthy “peasant” foods in their countries of origin, which means that if the dolts who idolize it as exotic knew how mundane it is in its countries of origin, they probably wouldn’t even touch it.

    Nowadays I can’t even stand the sight of hummus, Indian food, or Thai food (to name just three examples) because of the demographics among whom they are now so popular.

      I agree. Indian food especially.

      I do like Tex-mex. Tex Mex is awesome. tex mex takes mexican and makes it better.

      Worship of ‘exotic’ food has gotten so ridiculous that stuff like beef wellington is the new ‘exotic’

        I do especially like Korean kimchee, because it’s one of those pseudo-exotic foods that the hipstards WANT to popularize but can’t because they’re viscerally repelled by the smell. I love nothing more than taking a container of fresh spicy kimchee from the local Korean market to some public place, cracking it open, and diving into it ravenously while watching the hipstards wrinkling their noses in disgust, but daring not to say anything. Awesome form of cheap, satisfying entertainment!
