Not sure if this really warrants a thread. Maybe post pictures of shit food from menus or something. I dunno.

What do you mean why?

Because it looks great, that's why.

I like interpreting her intro as a threat

"I'm Kay, and I'm back cooking again"

What I love most about Kay is that she was asked if she was an Iron Maiden fan and she said not really, doesn't know any of their songs, just likes the t-shirts.

What is this, tea for a ten-year-old? Even then there's not enough fibre. You'll get constipated.

Simply undercook the burger, that'll have you shitting.

Anyway, it'll be full of rusk.

I'd forgotten about that. Good old fillers.

It's appropriate really as her food makes people Run To The Hills

If that second one in the OP is rag pudding with mushy peas, it is supposed to look like that.

Stuff like this, and the existence of Greggs always reminds me of this quote from Jill Your Friends

Quote
One thing you'll learn when you're in the business of selling utter shite to the Great British Public is that there's really no bottom to where they'll go. Shit food, shit TV, shit bands, shit films, shit houses. There is absolutely no fucking bottom with this stuff. The shittier you can make it - a bad photocopy of a bad photocopy of what was a shit idea in the first place - the more they'll eat it up with a big fucking spoon, from dawn till dusk, from now until the end of time. It's too good.

I am a big proponent of being as unpretentious as possible in terms of food, anytime I come across French or Italian or Japanese people who very proud of their cuisine and turn their nose down at British cuisine, I tend to argue against them just because its a bit snobbery.

Honestly though, it is really fucking embarrassing how little  we care about what we shove in our fat faces. Grey overprocessed cow and pig anus shoved into flaky pastry, tinned beans slathered next to a shit fried egg and fried bread.

Just bland, unhealthy fat crap; no care, no culture, nothing.

Other than our sense of humour, Britain really is bankrupt as fuck.

I think what you're saying is only true of the school dinner/McCain-level stuff. British food is characterised by there being a cultural or practical reason for most of it, it's comforting, and when done well it's something absolutely grand. It's the capacity it has for being done badly and the post-war period that gives it such a bad reputation.

I will absolutely take it over the American culture of food that I've experienced, any day. Americans generally just want food that has the right ingredients. Wanking over tacos because they have avocado or some kind of special onion or whatever, with really no expectations beyond that ingredient being included. Nachos with ingredients piled on being particularly reveled, something that has virtually no scope for finesse, a good nachos being decided entirely by its content.

I'm generalising and biased due to childhood but that's certainly my general experience.

Why isn't that cheese melting? What's underneath? What cheese is it? So many questions.

Do you think maybe it's because it hasn't been cooked yet

Yeah but why would you post a pre-cooking picture?

Speak for yourself, some of us can cook.  And UK processed food is much better quality than most other countries, including Japan.

I once lived near a Chinese restaurant that had a sign up in the window for several years saying "Fine Dinning". I haven't been past there for a while, but I hope the sign is still there.
