Jo Taylor BS: What do you miss from the old country? (70* d) RE: BS: What do you miss from the old country? 20 Oct 99


Thank you, Penny, for defending British food! Might sound strange from one living in France, but it is not easy to get any food which is Not French here. I'm in a rural area before someone starts on about cosmopolitan cities!
Answer: Beer, beer, beer, Marmite, bacon, marmalade, bread that you can toast, squishy wholemeal or granary bread, beer, swedes & parsnips, Cornish pasties, jelly (jello to the other side?), crumpets, fish 'n' chips, Indian takeaways, the huge range of good ingredients available in supermarkets, wholefood shops........and aside from comestibles, libraries, bookshops, smiling people in shops, and being able to go out and play or listen to music every night of the week, usually in pubs where you buy BEER! (Of course there are lots of things I'd miss about here were I there...)
