English Fare – A Fair Quote

I’ll bet what motivated the British to colonize so much of the world is that they were just looking for a decent meal. – Martha Harrison

I’d agree since I’ve been to London and have been greatly disappointed in their dishes -even the Italian was poor.

I remember eating at the house of an acquaintence who announced she and her husband were heading to England in a few days for holiday. Because the husband had never been, I insisted he eat well before he go. His wife became immediately indignant as though I had insulted her mother. Additionally, I reminded her that I, too, was English and had visited England, so insult was not intended.

She didn’t have a sense of humor and neither did the shepherd’s pie she was serving.
